Nikon Z 40mm f/2 (SE) Lens Summary

With a lightweight build and a superb optical performance, the Special Edition (SE) Nikon Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 (SE) lens is perfectly suited for shooting portraits and other subjects. The maximum f/2 aperture allows you to create beautifully rounded bokeh and its 40mm standard focal length emphasises the primary subject. On a DX body (crop sensor) you’ll have a 60mm focal length, which equates to slightly long standard.

The Nikon NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) lens inherits its design from classic Nikon DSLR lenses, which were released in the same period as the Nikon FM2 film camera - the heritage model that inspired the Z fc. Its arrival expands the choice of mirrorless Nikon lenses, which are suited to the Z fc’s retro design.

The compact size and lightweight nature of the Z 40mm f/2 SE means it doesn’t only look good, but is also perfect for those on the move. Meanwhile, its high-speed and accurate Auto Focus alongside its dust and drip resistant body allows the lens to blend into any lifestyle, enhancing the joy of shooting.

Key Nikon Z 40mm f/2 SE Special Edition Lens Features

  • Adoption of a heritage design that matches the Z fc, and that inherits the classic NIKKOR lenses released around the same time as the FM2.
  • The bright maximum aperture of f/2 and a 9-blade iris diaphragm provide beautiful round-shaped bokeh.
  • The 40 mm focal length supports a standard angle of view ideal for shooting portraits, snapshots and other subjects in a wide variety of scenes.
  • The focal length becomes 60 mm when mounted on an APS-C size/DX-format camera.
  • Compact and lightweight with a total length of approximately 45.5 mm and weight of approximately 170 g.
  • Minimum focus distance of 0.29 m allows users to get close to their subjects.
  • Adoption of an STM (stepping motor) enables high-speed and accurate AF with quiet operational sounds while maintaining a compact body size.
  • Designed with consideration of dust- and drip-resistant performance so that it can be taken anywhere with greater confidence.
  • Functions such as aperture and exposure compensation can be assigned to the control ring.
  • Designed with consideration for video recording with extremely quiet operation, effective focus-breathing control, and stable exposure.
  • Compact 52 mm filter thread for cost effective lens filters
