The AF-S micro nikkor 40mm f2.8G is moderately fast or bright, contrasty and extremely sharp lens,just like all its siblings in the Nikkor Micro (Macro for other brands) interchangeable lenses. It appears that Nikon has consistently improve and exceeded expectations in this "special purpose lenses" category. Historically, every Nikkor (brand name for Nikon lenses) which are stamped with "Micro-Nikkor" are stellar performers and tops its class versus the competition, this new AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f2.8G is no exception.

This lens is the latest of the lineage dating from the Micro Nikkor 55mm f2.8 AIS mount manual focus lens of early 1980s, its FX-format (35mm film) equivalent is the higher specs current model Nikon AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f2.8G ED N which works as a 90mm on the smaller DX-format DSLR. This is an interchangeable bayonet Nikon "G" mount single focal length (prime) DX lens designed for Nikon DX-format APS-C sensor based Digital SLR cameras. It has a "standard" angle of view that is close to "human eye perspective" as proclaimed by SLR camera manufacturers.

Officially it is not designed for and recommended for use with older Nikon 35mm film (FX) cameras without a body aperture control dial. However, when mounted on my compatible film Nikon F5,this lens retains full function and it works like a 40mm f2.8 micro lens at closest distance only,the edges darkens further from the subject. Though seems workable using "DX crop function" it is not recommended for the professional Nikon FX series digital SLRs (Nikon D700, D3 series)which the AF-S micro Nikkor 60mm f2.8 is designed for FX-format sensor.

I have been waiting for a lens like this AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f2.8G ever since Nikon released its older brother, the AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 85mm f3.5G VR.

Many forum threads have pondered whether to choose the 40mm micro of the 35mm 1.8. I have owned both, used them extensively and can safely conclude that the 40mm micro/macro is the better all-around lens. It can do most the 35 can do, but offers the added bonus of macro and superior sharpness and resistance to chromatic aberration.

Here are the pros of the 35mm 1.8
- affordable prime lens
- fast 1.8 aperture makes it potentially wonderful for indoor and low-light shots when flash is not available or permitted
- extremely sharp if you get a good copy (I've owned two copies. One was tack sharp all the way down to f/1.8. The other had a lot of chromatic aberration and purple fringing wide open).
- great starter lens for a photo class

Here are the cons of the 35mm 1.8
- purple fringing wide open
- blurry wide open (what's the point of 1.8 if you can't use it?)
- lens hood is way too small
- build quality is plasticky (but this applies to 40mm micro as well)

Here are the pros of the 40mm micro
- A great lens for amateur food photography (at the actual restaurant/kitchen with actual food)
- Nikon's most affordable macro lens
- f/2.

This Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro lens produces sharp pictures and great color and contrast. It is also perfect for portrait and many other general purposes. It's biggest feature I think is the macro capability (1:1) hence called Micro lens (Nikon terms for Macro lens). Overall, this is a very versatile lens. On a non full frame DSLR (such as D40, D40x, D60, D5000, D80, D90, D200, D300 etc), this 40mm focal length is equivalent to about 60mm which close to a normal lens which is 50mm (normal as to being close to a person eye viewing angle perspective).

This lens should be able to replace the 35mm f/1.8 (with the extra macro flexibility) unless you are specifically using this for low light environment and would need the extra speed of the 35mm f/1.8 lens (and a second reason if you really need the extra 5mm wider angle).

The biggest drawback for this macro lens is actually (and sort of ironically) when you need to do professional macro work, this lens is just ok (since at the closest distance which is about 50mm between the lens and the subject, and often block important lights to the subject. Additionally some subjects will not be easy to get too close to (insect, birds, butterfly, etc). Basically, more professional macro work, the 105mm or 200mm macro lenses would be a better choice/investment.

Another drawback of this lens is as you focused closer (which is true for all macro lens), the lens becomes slower, and at the closest focus 35mm (1:1), the maximum aperture is f/4.2.

This lens has AF-S feature which is auto focus system that is internal to the lens which means this lens auto-focus will also work on cameras that doesn't have internal auto-focus motor such as D40, D40x, D60, D3000, D3100, D5000 and D5100.
