I could write literal poetry to the Nikon 40mm f2. First off, Nikon made their 40mm lens smaller than a bunch of others on the market. The Zeiss option available for Sony is very large; and considering the issues with Zeiss’s Loxia lenses, it’s probably bound to have problems too. But with the Nikon, you’re getting beautiful image quality, a nearly true-normal lens, and weather resistance. On top of all that, the autofocus is good. And most importantly, when mated to the right camera, it will be a combo you want to bring with you everywhere. There’s much more in our review. If that’s not good enough, then it’s got an instant rebate right now. Check out this and more great Nikon deals below!

Here are the pros and cons of our Nikon 40mm f2 review
- Durable, incredibly so!
- Beautiful image quality
- I like the colors.
- Autofocus is great, but the smarts on the cameras aren’t so much when it comes to subject detection. However, it’s solid in the studio
- Nice bokeh
- It’s a 40mm!
- Bro, it’s $299.99. Like, this is THE IMPULSE BUY lens from Nikon.
- Autofocus on the Nikon z6 II is much improved, but still falls behind other brands for stuff like street photography
