40mm Nikon macro lens offers impressive value

The new Nikon 40mm f/2.8 G offers full 1:1 macro functionality for an impressive £249.99 (RRP), making it one of the cheaper options on the market. The lens can also be used in a full frame FX model, although the crop factor increases the focal length to 60mm.

The lightweight lens also has a Silent Wave Motor for quieter autofocus, and has a manual override focus mode. The lens will be available from the 25th of August, for more information go to Nikon’s website.
