Nikon release a new micro lens

Nikon have announced a new edition to their macro lens range, the  AF-S NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G, a DX-format Micro lens offering a focal length of 40mm and a maximum aperture of f/2.8.

This lens is  bright and fast. The 40mm f/2.8 aperture allows close-up shooting as near as 0.163m, allowing you to capture miniature subjects in  life-size detail. It’s equipped with a Silent Wave Motor that enables the quiet auto-focus – vital to close-up photography of insects and animals – and two focus modes – M/A (auto-focus with manual override) and M (manual).

Compact, lightweight and affordably priced, it makes a great edition to the prosumer’s kit.

The new lens will ship in August with an rrp of $449.
