Nikon Releases Nikkor Z 40MM F/2 Compact Lightweight Prime Lens For Nikon Z Mount
Nikon today announced the release of the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2, a compact and lightweight prime lens compatible with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted. The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 is a compact and lightweight, standard prime lens with a fast f/2 maximum aperture that allows users to easily enjoy bokeh as part of their imaging expression.
The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 delivers outstanding AF performance and dust- and drip-resistance, while balancing high cost-performance, and is ideal for a broad range of Z series users, including those new to mirrorless cameras as well as professional photographers. It achieves a compact and lightweight body with a total length of approximately 45.5 mm and weight of approximately 170 g, while providing a versatile 40 mm standard angle of view that can be utilized for a wide range of scenes.
The wide Z mount combines with the lens’ wide f/2 maximum aperture to deliver great low-light performance, ideal for capturing the mood of dimly lit situations. The rounded 9-blade aperture enables soft, natural-looking bokeh: photographers and movie shooters can capture images with softly blurred, super-creamy backgrounds that really make their subject stand out. This bright, standard prime lens offers a natural angle of view that is ideal for candid portraits, interviews, and how-to videos.
