Product Information

Nikon's fast 40mm prime with a cool retro design.

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.


Stylish point of view on any Z series camera.

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.


Shoot after hours.

Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.


Get in close.

Focus as close as 0.96 ft. from your subject and reveal the smallest details, ideal for food shots, plants and much more.


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.


Nothing weighing you down.

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.


Fast, reliable focus.

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 the 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.
  • Super Integrated Coating

    Nikon Super Integrated Coating is Nikon's term for its multilayer coating of the optical elements in NIKKOR lenses.
  • 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.
  • Stepping Motor

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