Very Good & Awesome Lens

Pros:
-Stunning Image Quality
-Best BOKEH Effects
-1:1 Good Image Quality
-Extreme Close Focussing
-Good for potraits
Cons:
-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

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:
Pros:
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...

For low budget, this is nice lens to try out macro shots

worth to try out macro for for beginners.
you need to get very close (around 2 cm) to subject for true macro (1:1)
Good colors but no sharp. A bit on soft side.
Portraits show a bit of soft focus.
Poor low light focusing.
For low budget, this is nice lens to start with. Pictures are good to share on mobile or get small prints.

Added a photo (i cropped it a bit)

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...

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...

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 ...

Nikon AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G

It's an excellent piece of glass, no doubt. I've just bought it through flipkart and shoot some pictures. It's sharpness on all apertures are unique. My macro shots are also stunning. This lens is really versatile and great for it's price. And this is the sharpest among cheaper Nikkor lenses. Nikon proves their legacy to budget, entry level customers. Just one sentence about this lens: "A real professional quality on an amateure price". Just take it and enjoy...

SHARP, TINY & MACRO

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

Cons:
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
