The Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is an all-purpose prime lens with an exceptional optical performance and impressive bokeh expression in a compact and lightweight design. This lens fits easily into your bag as the ideal companion to photograph every important occasion. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2's versatility allows you to shoot a wide range of objects and scenes with ease." The new lens adds a new dimension to image quality, low-light performance, and the ability to create beautiful bokeh. Soft, creamy bokeh, which brings out the beauty of every moment, can provide creators with a stunning edge to their visual imagery.

Everyday Perfection

Make the most out of the compact mirrorless system with its small size and incredibly lightweight of approximately 170g. With the Nikon Z 40mm f/2, it is simple to capture everyday situations without sacrificing overall performance with bokeh expression and standard focal length. The Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 lens includes a motor with a small-diameter, high-torque stepping motor (STM), establishing the right combination between compactness and efficiency enabling users to experience its fast and precise focusing, as well as quiet autofocus (AF) control mechanism. Besides, take the Nikon Z 40mm f/2 lens everywhere you go to capture crisp detail in every image, thanks to the lens' dust- and drip-resistant capabilities

A Treat for Your Eyes

Capture a wide range of scenes with the 40mm versatile angle of view, and enjoy the outstanding optical performance even as you approach closer to your subject with the minimum focus distance of 0.29m. Users can effortlessly capture and elevate any moment by bringing the beauty of bokeh to life, from fast-paced street photography in the city to golden-hour moments at the beach. Using the lens' f/2 aperture and 9 aperture blades, you can make your subjects pop out from the backdrop with visually beautiful, soft, creamy, rounded bokeh. The fast maximum aperture allows the shutter speed to shoot swiftly, especially in low-light situations and prevents minor camera shake for clearer photos with bokeh.

Unmatched Versatility

On the Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 lens, users may easily switch between photo-taking and video-recording modes, assuring that priceless, picturesque moments are effortlessly documented. The lens' amazing quiet operation avoids lens drive and operation noise from being recorded, and its excellent operability is capable of filming a smooth shift in-focus position and brightness level, enabling users to record their surroundings with clarity. The lens also improves users' filming experiences by delivering smooth and natural videos, as well as a focus-breathing reduction function that eliminates a movement in the angle of view when attempting to acquire focus and a stabilised exposure during aperture changes. With the recording capabilities of the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2, documenting special events such as an engagement, a backpacking trip, or a get-together with loved ones will now be made more immersive.
