I was excited when I ordered this and felt I couldn't wait for it to come in, and much to my surprise when I placed my order on Amazon, the vendor just happened to be offering free next day shipping, I ordered the lens late morning Friday and it came before noon Saturday, (yes, not only free next day shipping but free Saturday delivery as well) just as they promised, and in well padded packaging.
As for the "Nikon 40mm f/2.8G AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR Lens for Nikon Digital SLR Cameras" I first tested the lens on taking a picture of gold cross chain laid out on a page of my bible, and was impressed with the supper focus I was able to achive the ability to fine tune the depth of field (Selective focus)is impressive. you can realy get in close, the ability for this lens to achieve close up images is superb. I was able to fine tune it to limit the in focus section to just a part of the cross and a couple of lines of scripture.
I later used it to take a close up picture of my daughter's eye while she was focusing on a picture of a rose from a computer screen and the reflective image of the rose in her eye came out great. I would recomemd this lens to anyone who wants to do macro photography.
I have shot great macros, portraits, street scenes, long exposures, and landscapes with this lens. If you are traveling light and can only bring one lens, this is a great choice.
This is a prime lens that you don't have to sell a kidney to buy, and it is good enough and versatile enough that if you can only buy one prime, make it this one.
Love, love, love this lens! Great proce, great utility.
I had a specific use for this lens which most people wouldn't make use of (and is not worth trying to explain here), but as it turns out I find I'm keeping this lens on my camera for more than I would have expected. The light weight and speed, and compact size makes this a pleasure to carry around.
The only negative I can come up with is that the autofocus can hunter around occasionally ( I experienced this with the Sigma as well). The autofocus can be confused when it encounters bright spots or transparent surfaces again I find this something of a non issue, I simply adjust my approach/settings and there is no problem. I gave this 5 stars based on quality vs. cost.
As I wrote earlier - this lens is well worth the money.
I do have the 105mm 2.8D Micro, but this is a great lens as it serves double duty. It gives me a good walkaround lens view and it doubles as a good macro! I don't worry about how close I get to plants or flowers with this lens at all. Also, because I'm closer to the subject my on camera flash does really well for lighting.
Overall I'm very happy with the colors, sharpness and viewing angle of this lens. Also, it focuses quickly and has the focusing limiter switch as well.
A keeper and twice as versatile than the 35mm 1.8G and the 50mm 1.8D.
