Very sharp. 1:1 magnification. Focus limiter switch. Compact. Inexpensive.
Lacks stabilization. Not a full-frame lens
At its asking price, the image quality that the Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G ($279.95) delivers is staggering. It's a macro lens with a slightly longer than standard-angle field of view, life-size magnification at its closest focus distance, and...

very good image quality in the frame centre, good image quality on the edge, decently corrected chromatic aberration, practically zero distortion, splendidly corrected coma, silent and accurate autofocus
the build quality could have been at least a tad better, noticeable astigmatism, slow autofocus, huge vignetting at the maximum relative aperture, too weak work against bright light.
To sum up, the new Nikon lens can have at a push even three uses. First of all it is a macro device but it can be also considered a standard lens or be used as a telephoto for less stiff portraits.The lens was provided for testing purposes by the Cyfrowe....

Small, economical and excellent performance - there's a lot to like here. Nikon markets this lens as an introduction to macro photography, and I think they've done very well here to make that happen. Macro enthusiasts may want a bit more working room ...

However, there are some limitations potential purchasers should understand, the first being the relatively short working distance for macro work. At 16.3 cm, it is too close to photograph easily-spooked subjects. It's also a little short for situations wh...
