Ideal for macro shooting, this lens offers a life-size 1:1 maximum magnification along with a minimum focusing distance of 6.4" to suit working with close-up subjects.
A Super Integrated Coating has been applied to individual elements to suppress internal reflections, flare, and ghosting for improved contrast and color accuracy when working in strong lighting conditions.
Silent Wave Motor affords quick, quiet, and precise autofocus performance along with full-time manual focus override.
Rounded seven-blade diaphragm promotes a pleasing out of focus quality that benefits the use of shallow depth of field and selective focus techniques.

I needed a lens that worked well for photographing jewelry and precious stones. I hadn't been happy with shots I was getting with my other lenses. The NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Lens turned out to be perfect for my needs

This lens works great so far!! I just started out in macro photography and this lens is petty easy to use. I would definitely recommend it even though I haven't used it a whole lot yet

This should be your first macro lens

For almost 2 years I've been shooting macros with the 18-55 kit lens and a 10x magnifier with a 5x loupe taped to that. It did the job, but the quality is what you would imagine. After shooting with this lens, the images were now crisp, clear and no chromatic aberration. If you're on the fence for a macro lens, get it - I wish I had gotten this sooner.

Good photographic lens

Good lens. Compact and lightweight. I have tested it on my nikon d7500, video autofocus is a problem. However, in manual mode it works perfectly and is silent. For photography it is essential and a good starting point to start with macro photography.

It's built more cheaply than my 18-70 nikon kit lens that came with my d70 years ago. Optically very nice. Focus is almost silent and pretty quick for macro lens. I wish b&h would add where its made in the specs. My partner works for the dept of defense. Trust me, you guys will be sorry if you continue to empower China. Thinking of returning lens but B&h is such a top notch company I may not trouble them and jjust keep shooting this excellent piece of plastic.
