Owner reviews: Nikon AF-S Micro Nikkor 40 mm f/ 2.8 G DX
- Ultra sharp edge to edge and at all appertures up to f/11, one of the sharpest lens Nikon has ever made.
- Light and compact.
- Ideal for generic use.
- It lets you get really close.
- Neatly geared manual focussing ring allowing fine control of the manual focusing operation.
- Just one, to get 1:1 macro shots you get your nose on the subject. Inevitably you cast your own shadow to it in many cases.
I have been using a Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 D on my D90 for quite long. Not dealing with low light situations and mostly having it stopped down after f/5.6 to get the sharpest possible output, I began something that would not let me worry about the sharpness in picture taking. The 40mm offers that in a neat package. It is ultra sharp, compact, and it is close to a 50mm on a DX body. It focuses fast and silently and the output is almost free of any distortion.
A great bang for the money!
