    Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Close-up Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras

    • First macro lens I've owned, I've took some great photos with it
    • The lens came in good time and is well made and is very sharp, takes great micro photos of bugs, flowers and land scapes and people on my Nikon D3200.Update: after a year and 8000 plus photo's the lens is failing, making a grinding noise when auto focusing and does not want to auto focus, right, after hundreds of photo's and 2 different Nikon D3200 cameras, on tripod and hand held can no longer get clear images in macro mode with lens set on auto, manual focus seems to work ok so far
    • Also it's very good with portraits, takes a very SHARP photos and a 2.8 aperture produce a shallow depth of field great for portraits (some lense distortion happens when you get too close to the
    • I got some really nice pics!I will be posting a few photos later on once I get outside (and the rain stops) so everyone can see how amazing the photos can be even as an amateur like me
    • But how many times have you "seen" that fabulous photo within your photo?

    • I could take advantage of the D7000 being able to use this cheaper non-G lens
    • This is a great intro to macro lens especially for the price, it gets you get super close to your subject and produces razor sharp images wether you're a seasoned pro or the novice photographer
    • I was on a budget so this fit my needs and can produce some super sharp images.

    Nikon AF-S DX Micro-NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G Close-up Lens for Nikon DSLR Cameras

    • PRICE!!Cons:-No VR - may need to crank up ISO especially for handheld macro such as flowers, bugs, etc (or get creative with a tripod, rest the camera on a rock, etc)-40mm and need to be close to subject for 1:1 macro, can cause issues with blocking sunlight (depending on the angle you're shooting from) or scaring away the more skittish insects (butterflies); still, if you're sneaky enough and strategic with lighting it can produce great macro imagesI got this for macro (105mm too expensive for me) but the first time I used it was to photograph waterfalls
    • I did not find the earlier release suitable because I am not into close-up macrophotography shooting bugs and butterflies which the Micro Nikkor DX 85
    • I sometimes use this lens to take a picture of a clump of flowers in the backyard, then crop in and isolate a butterfly
    • I might just sell it and not buy anything similar until I feel the need for an expensive f/1.4 lens
