Nikon 40mm f/2.8G Micro Lens
Nikon pancake lens the 40mm.
The Nikon 40mm f/2.8 G is a great low cost micro (macro) lens allowing up to 1x life size stills. At 40mm it is a good all round lens, especially for HD D-Movies, portraits and general close ups.
The 40mm weighs only 280 grams and has a minimum focus distance of 16.3cm so you can still get close to a subject, but without disturbing it, should it be an insect for example.
This lens comes with a full 2 year Australian Local Warranty.

- Great DX Macro / Micro for Nikon owners Review by Peter Skennerton All my reviews (1)
Quality Ease of Use Price Value
I recently purchased the Nikon AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm F/2.8G and found it to be a well manufactured great performer for DX Cameras. No obvious distortion was evident across the focal range and excelent sharpness under maximum camera image zoom.
Price was marked down as I missed the June Special for under $300. My fault totally.
The limitations that dropped the Value rating is it is a G lens therefore you have to control the Aperature via the camera and it is a DX lens so if you upgrade to a full frame camera you would have to replace the lens. Minor things overall and very good value for modern DX camera owners who need a good Macro / Micro lens.
Focus and Reproduction Ratio are controled by the focus ring. You can use the lens in mormal AF mode and let that control the reproduction ratio or set the Reproduction Ratio and move the camera backwards and forwards to achieve focus. At 1:1 Reproduction Ratio the front of the lens is very close to the subject (163mm from the focal plane of the camera).
I will be adding an adjustable plate system (probably the Manfrotto one) to my kit in the near future to make focussing easier when a specific Reproduction Ratio is required. Wide open at 163mm gives very little DoF so focusing is critical.
