Don't hesitate to open it up

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is particularly sharp when shot wide open (meaning the aperture or "f number" is set to its lowest number). With a wide f/2 maximum aperture you can capture crisp details of up-close subjects while blurring out the background.

Features

Overview: The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is a prime lens for Nikon's Z-series of mirrorless full-frame cameras. Its 40mm focal length (with FX-format cameras) sits between two popular focal lengths, 35mm and 50mm, and can be used for portraits and closeups, as well as indoor and street photography. For DX-format cameras, the lens has a 60mm field-of-view that is just as versatile.

9-blade Rounded Diaphragm: The NIKKOR Z 40mm lens features a fast f/2 aperture. Its shallow depth-of-field, combined with the 9-blade rounded diaphragm can produce stunning out-of-focus background elements (bokeh) in your photographs.

Weather Sealed: The lens is durable and lightweight, and is extensively sealed against dust and water droplets, particularly around all moving parts.

Control Ring: The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 features a click-less control ring that can be used for a variety of functions. In Autofocus mode, you can rotate the ring to change the aperture setting or to switch from auto- to manual focus. In Manual Focus mode, the control ring rotates for precise focusing. The function of the control ring is controlled in the camera.

Nikon Technologies: The lens is equipped with the following Nikon technologies:

  • Stepping Motor (STM): The lens uses a stepping motor to give you fast, quiet autofocusing. This makes it ideal to use when shooting video.
  • Aspherical Lens: Aspherical lens elements have curved, non-spherical surfaces, which reduce aberrations, and allow lighter, and more compact lens sizes. They correct distortion in wide-angle lenses.
  • Internal Focus (IF): When focusing, only the internal lens groups move, meaning the lens length does not change.
  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism: An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism gives you accurate diaphragm and aperture blade control when using auto exposure, particularly during continuous shooting.
