Product Information

Easy to carry. Fun to shoot.

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is an ultra-compact prime you can rely on with any Z camera in just about any situation. Its wide enough for street work, landscapes and interiors but tight enough for authentic portraits and candid shots. It has a fast f/2 maximum aperture that powers through low lighting, helps freeze fast action and separates your subject from the background with a beautiful bokeh effect. And it does all of this with clarity, consistency and brightness that's all Z.


Great on any Z camera.

Sitting between two prized focal lengths, 35mm and 50mm, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 takes strong points from each. It captures natural-looking portraits and close-ups like a 50mm, but it's also wide enough for shooting indoors, on the street or in a crowd like a 35mm. On a DX-format Z camera, it has a field of view of 60mm*, another all-purpose focal length for everything from portraits to street photography.
*35mm equivalent


Nothing weighing you down.

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is so compact and lightweight—just 1.8 inches long and weighing 6 oz—you'll forget it's even there. It doesn't extend or retract, so it's always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.


Dramatic depth.

Make your subject stand out against a beautifully blurred background. The shallow depth of field of f/2 is enhanced by the lens' 9 rounded blade diaphragm, creating a natural bokeh effect.


Get in close.

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 rewards you for getting in close to your subject. The lens' beautiful bokeh is accentuated at closer distances, giving your subject almost three-dimensional separation.


Shoot after hours.

The larger Z mount draws even more light gathering performance from the wide f/2 aperture. Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.


Video savvy.

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2's quiet autofocus system greatly suppresses focus breathing to prevent angle-of-view shifts during recording. Make smooth iris adjustments with the click-less control ring to create a natural shift in brightness.


Fast, confident focus.

When it comes to autofocus, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is the strong, silent type. A new high-torque stepping motor operates at blazing fast speeds in near silence, whether using Eye-Detection AF or continuous subject tracking.


Customizable control.

The smooth click-less control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.


Dust and drip resistant.

The lens barrel and all moving parts are designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance with sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.*
* The lens is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations and under all conditions.


Technology:

  • Aspherical Lens

    A lens with a curved, non-spherical surface. Used to reduce aberrations and enable a more compact lens size. Aspherical lenses minimize coma and other types of lens aberrations, even when used at the widest aperture. They are particularly useful in correcting distortion in wide-angle lenses and help contribute to a lighter, more compact design by reducing the number of standard (spherical) elements necessary. Aspherical lens elements correct these distortions by continuously changing the refractive index from the center of the lens.

  • IF Lens

    A NIKKOR lens in which only the internal lens group shifts during focusing. Thus, IF NIKKORS do not change in size during AF operation, allowing for compact, lightweight lenses capable of closer focusing distances. These lenses will be designated with the abbreviation IF on the lens barrel.

  • Electromagnetic Diaphragm Mechanism

    An electromagnetic diaphragm mechanism in the lens barrel provides highly accurate electronic diaphragm or aperture blade control when using auto exposure during continuous shooting.

  • Stepping Motor

    NIKKOR Z lenses use a stepping motor for fast, accurate, smooth, quiet autofocus with reduced wobbling. This quiet drive system makes the lenses ideal for use when shooting video.
