Our ultra-compact, lightweight 40mm f/2 prime with a vintage special edition (SE) design. Unique checked knurling, a contrasting silver band plus a retro NIKKOR logo and typeface, all with the versatile 40mm view, fast f/2 maximum aperture, excellent subject/background separation, and natural soft bokeh of the original lens.
This special edition of our 40mm f/2 prime is more than a lens—it’s a shooting style. Fast. In-the-moment. Improvisational. Its compact size and tactile feel make it a smooth operator, and its classic styling elevates the look of any Z camera. Combine that with the great low-light performance, beautiful bokeh, and a natural angle of view of the original lens, and you’ve got a 40mm prime that really is special.
A full-frame standard prime, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) works—and looks—great on any Z series camera. On full-frame/FX-format cameras like Z 6II and Z 5, it covers the sweet spot between 35mm and 50mm. On APS-C size/DX format cameras like Z fc, Z 50, and Z 30, it delivers a 60mm* field of view.
Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.
Focus as close as 0.96 ft. from your subject and reveal the smallest details, ideal for food shots, plants and much more.
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.
At just 1.8 inches long and 6 ounces, you'll forget the lens is 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.
A new high-torque stepping motor operates at blazing fast speeds in near silence, whether using Eye-Detection AF or continuous subject tracking.
The smooth click-less control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust the aperture, ISO, or exposure compensation.
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.
