      Why is there a shipping charge for this item?

      Sellers with Flipkart Assured waive off the delivery charge for Orders over Rs 500. For Orders under Rs 500, a nominal delivery charge is added per item.

      What is the estimated delivery time?

      Sellers generally procure and ship the items within the time specified on the product page. Business days exclude public holidays and Sundays.

      Estimated delivery time depends on the following factors:

      • The Seller offering the product
      • Product's availability with the Seller
      • The destination to which you want the order shipped to and the Seller's location

      Why does the delivery date not correspond to the delivery timeline of X-Y business days?

      It is possible that the Seller or our courier partners observe a holiday between the day you placed your order and the date of delivery, which is based on the timelines shown on the product page. In this case, we add a day to the estimated date. Some courier partners and Sellers do not work on Sundays and this is factored in to the delivery dates.

      Why does the estimated delivery time vary for each seller?

      If you haven't provided your pincode until the checkout stage, the pincode in your last used shipping address will be used to check for serviceability.

      Whether your location can be serviced or not depends on:

      • Whether the Seller actually ships to your location
      • Legal restrictions, if any, in shipping particular products to your location
      • The availability of reliable courier partners in your location

      At times Sellers prefer not to ship to certain locations. This is entirely at their discretion.

    Great walkaround lens and amazing lens for an amateur macro enthusiast!

    First of all thanks to Flipkart for the delivery within 3 days! and am glad that i purchased it during price slash season!!

    Lens review:
    1. 1:1 macro capable lens at an affordable price.
    2. Closest distance from lens for 1:1 macro: 4 cm approx. (Great for product/still life macros)
    3. Great sharpness and amazing depth of field.
    4. Very great walkaround lens even during low light (because of F2.8 light) and a great portrait lens too!
    5. Close to noiseless and quick auto focus. Thanks t...

    Very Good & Awesome Lens

    -Stunning Image Quality
    -Best BOKEH Effects
    -1:1 Good Image Quality
    -Extreme Close Focussing
    -Good for potraits
    -Slow Autofocus, Autofocus literally hunts arond the focus zone.
    -Extreme Bad at Low Light, U have to go manual focussing for low light
    -Not too good for macro photography of insects n all because you need to get real close which is impossible without disturbing it.
    - No VR

    Good Sharp Lenz for Potrait on DX Cam, and as 1st Micro Lenz

    This is a very good sharp lenz for general purpose photography on a DX cam if you are also interested in taking Macro snaps of flowers, food, etc. If you are not particular about Macro photography go for the 35mm prime lenz on a DX body. This particular lenz will act as a 1st lenz for those who are interested in macro photography as well. Macro capability is limited since you cannot take macro photos of live objects since you will have to go very near it to take a good snap. Another probl...

    Good one for Macro beginners!

    Am so amazed with its macro capability.
    As macro is my favorite stream, it sticks on to my D5100 most of the time.
    But as it is 40mm, you have to get more closer to the subject to get a real macro photo(i really mean extreme macro). Its great for portraits also.

    And about Flipkart's service...
    This is my first purchase from flipkart.
    The item was delivered 2days before the expected date.
    So a happy Customer :)

    Tiny & Powerful

    I bought this lens few days back, and I have started doing some closeup /macro shot from that days onwards. I was pretty much confused between 3 lens, 35mm , 40mm and 50mm. FYI I had some great interest in close up photography so I choose this one over 35mm while I have rejected 50mm due to its NOT-SO-VERSATILE angle of view.

    Good Things
    1. Amazingly Sharp.
    2. Beautiful color.
    3. Auto focus is pretty fast on infinite node.
    4. On 1:1 the bokeh effect is out of the world.
    5. Very versatile Pri...

    A beginner's choice for macros and potraits

    Its been two months since i have started using this lens on my nikon 5200. I haven't removed it even once ! The images taken with this lens are sharp and vivid. With close macro, like in 1:1 circumstances, arriving at sharp point is difficult but with time you will get better. One problem I found with this lens is, ( as mentioned by many fellow buyers ) you have to move extremely close i.e. around 4cm from the subject to get 1:1. But little distance from the subject will not harm your photo ...

    Its My fav lens, all time prime.
    40mm is near to geat for general purpose photography.

    It serves me as:
    1) General purpose @ 40mm
    2) Awesome macro
    3) Close portraits ( eqv to 60mm on a DX body)
    4) Smother bokeh, no less than 50mm 1.8g or 35mm 1.8g

    1) Focus a bit slow, even with Infiniy-0.2mm
    2) Only for DX ( crop sensor)
    3) 40mm is a bit too short for serious macro purpose.

    OVERALL - ITS A GREAT NIKON GUY, HIGHLY RECOMMENDED for those who want to have a limited KIT.

    Good start

    A nice piece of glass brilliant good for portraits and macro, though the 40mm reach seems quite a prob as u need to get more close to the subject where as a 105mm wud be suitable but instead of a 105mm macro one can buy a 2x teleconverter to double the reach plus n 80mm is quite satisfying and the telecoverter will compliment with ur others lenses too specially with a telephoto

    Cheapest True Macro lens with wonderful perfomance

    Cheapest True Macro lens
    True 1:1 reproduction capacity
    Good bokeh
    Silent autofocus
    Very light weight and compatible

    While close focusing for 1:1 ratio, lens cascade a shadow on object
    Sometimes lens hits the object
    No VR, so tricky in low light
    Max aperture is f/4 at 1:1 ratio or at closest focal distance.
