If you're deciding between this lens and the 35mm 1.8 and have any interest in dabbling in macro photography, get this lens! If you're more than a little interested in macro photography (and on a budget), but would also like a good all purpose lens, I'd also say this would be a good lens for you. If you want to do extensive macro work, you probably don't even need to read this review to know you'll need a more expensive, dedicated macro lens.
Good Glass is what it's all about and I have to say this lens has it. Okay this lens has a razor thin depth of field and at times gave to work around that. It does create issues for novice shutterbugs when shooting macro. In the end any Photographer worth their salt can overcome that.
The Bokhe on this lens is amazing, making it a dream for portrait photography, and with it being a macro lens I've found that it is just the ticket when shooting babies. I was able to get in for close ups and not have to crop at all.
Ive used it for Macro - Street photography - Portrait and Wedding Photography for the short time I had it and I don't mind saying I had a blast shooting with with lens and will get it again soon.
At f/2.8 it is not the best lowlight lens for shooting in clubs and events. Still it's it's no slouch and better then the kit lens's.
And on top of that, where else can you find a macro / micro lens to play with for under $300.00 Honestly for the price I have not found a lens in it's range that makes this great of a general purpose walk around prime lens.
1st Lens: 18-200mm - A jack of all trades but master of none. My most-used lens, but wanted something faster that could do shallow DOF at closer distances.
2nd Lens: 50mm 1.8D - Figured I could take advantage of the D7000 being able to use this cheaper non-G lens. Also, due to having a manual aperture ring, allowed me to use it with basic macro tubes. While I got decent results with the macro tubes, they were clunky to use and were prone to ghosting if the sun caught them the wrong way. Also, while it did the job for good indoor low light performance at f1.8, I often found 50mm a bit too tight on my DX body.
3rd Lens: I was between the 35mm 1.8G and this 40mm 2.8G... I went with this one and I'm glad I did. While it's not going to come close to a 105mm VR (if I could afford one now) for insect photography, it's functional in this task as long as the subject isn't *super* jittery. While everyone says you wind up using manual focus/camera moving for macro, being able to let the AF get you "close" before fine-tuning in manual was a huge help for things like butterflies when they might only be in one spot for a few seconds (when compared to non-electronic macro tubes). For a sample of such shots, I have a few in the customer images.
For non-macro work, I feel that this can do 90% of the same things the 35mm 1.8 could have, and for those situations where I need that extra 1 stop more light/shallower DOF, I have my 50mm 1.8. And truth be told, the D7000 does so well at high ISO, I can often compensate by upping that and still be happy with the results.
Within a year or two I fully intend to own a 105mm 2.8 VR macro... but this lens was a great way to stave off that craving for under $300 instead of spending $900. And even once I own the 105, I don't see this lens going anywhere... it's great for larger objects like flowers or product shots, as well as it's general prime use, and much easier to carry than a 105.
