Great On Any Z Camera
Sitting between two prized focal lengths, 35mm and 50mm, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 takes strong points from each. It captures natural-looking portraits and close-ups like a 50mm, but it’s also wide enough for shooting indoors, on the street or in a crowd like a 35mm. On a DX-format Z camera, it has a field of view of 60mm*, another all-purpose focal length for everything from portraits to street photography.
Nothing Weighing You Down
The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is so compact and lightweight—just 1.8 inches long and weighing 6 oz—you’ll forget it’s even there. It doesn’t extend or retract, so it’s always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.
Make your subject stand out against a beautifully blurred background. The shallow depth of field of f/2 is enhanced by the lens’ 9 rounded blade diaphragm, creating a natural bokeh effect.
Get in Close
The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 rewards you for getting in close to your subject. The lens’ beautiful bokeh is accentuated at closer distances, giving your subject almost three-dimensional separation.
Shoot After Hours
The larger Z mount draws even more light gathering performance from the wide f/2 aperture. Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.
The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2’s quiet autofocus system greatly suppresses focus breathing to prevent angle-of-view shifts during recording. Make smooth iris adjustments with the click-less control ring to create a natural shift in brightness.
Fast, Confident Focus
When it comes to autofocus, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is the strong, silent type. A new high-torque stepping motor operates at blazing fast speeds in near silence, whether using Eye-Detection AF or continuous subject tracking.
The smooth click-less control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.
Dust and Drip Resistant
The lens barrel and all moving parts are designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance with sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.*
* The lens is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations and under all conditions.
