Overview: The Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G
lens is a fixed focal length lens with a natural wide angle view, and a f/2.8
aperture. It is ideal for general close-ups, delicate flowers, detailed
collectibles, copy photography, portraits, and landscapes.
Super Integrated Coating: Nikon's Super Integrated Coating
enhances light transmission efficiency and offers superior color consistency and
reduced lens flare.
Silent Wave Motor (SWM): The exclusive Nikon Silent Wave
Motor (SWM) enables fast, accurate, and quiet auto focus.
Focus Mode Switch: The Focus Mode switch on the barrel of
the lens lets you easily switch between manual focus and auto focus. If you want
to enable auto focusing, the camera must be set to Auto Focus, and the switch on
the lens needs to be set to "M/A". With most Nikon D-SLRs, the lens gives you a
manual override option, allowing you to rotate the separate focus ring while
pressing the shutter release halfway.
Focus Limit Switch: In addition to the Focus Mode Switch,
the lens has a 2-way Focus Limit Switch, which determines the focus distance
limits for autofocus. You can select "Full" for subjects that may be closer than
0.7' (8.4"), or Infinity-0.2m if the subject will always be at the distance of
at least 0.7'.
Diaphragm: The lens is equipped with a rounded 7-blade
Lens Hood: The lens comes with the HB-61 bayonet-type lens
hood. The hood adds approximately 1-3/4" to the overall length of the lens. You
can invert the hood and snap it onto the lens for storage, if desired.
