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.

The f/2 constant wide aperture and a short minimum focus distance of 0.29m of the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) allows you to effortlessly create and capture moments against a background of large and soft bokeh - thanks to the 9-blade iris diaphragm. See your work in clarity even while shooting handheld. The f/2 wide aperture provides the versatility to capture in low-light situations by allowing you to use higher shutter speeds.

Share your perspectives not just in stills, but with also videos. The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) records in near silent with its quiet AF mechanism and click-less control ring to minimise any stray sounds. The focus-breathing reduction function effectively reduces the shifting of angle view for a smooth and natural shift in focus position.

For life's moments.

Explore a broad spectrum of scenes and subjects from cityscape snapshots to portraits with the versatile angle of view by the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE). When attached to an APS-C size/DX-format camera, an equivalent 60mm medium-telephoto angle of view provides three-dimensional rendering with impressive bokeh — perfectly suited for portraits.

The perfect balance between compactness and superb autofocus control performance, the lens adopts a small-diameter, high-torque stepping motor (STM) that is outstandingly quiet, fast and accurate. Built tough on the exterior, the lens is designed to be dust- and drip-resistant¹ with a sealing that prevents external contaminants from entering the lens.
