Nikon AF-S DX Micro-Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G 35mm Primes
Submitted by Franglais a Expert
Date Reviewed: February 20, 2012
Strengths: Image quality.
I think it's the sharpest lens I have
Clarity and contrast
Weaknesses: Can't think of anything
This is probably my best lens as far as image quality goes. Sometimes the images have a three-dimensional quality about them. They are in any case very sharp.
I use this lens occasionaly for document copies and small objects (what a macro lens is intended for) but mostly I use it in the studio for upper body portraits and nudes. I happen to prefer square images in the studio. Cutting the top and bottom off the rectangular image format with my normal lenses (like the 18-200) sometimes gave me images that were sharp but were lacking something undefinable. The 40mm macro gives me that extra clarity and sharpness that I was looking for
