Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 Lens Specifications

bythom nikon 40mm

Compact and light near-normal lens

Thom's Commentary: A bit old-school (corners not as snappy as center), but a solid fastish, normalish, prime lens for FX cameras. Makes for an adequate slightly wide portrait lens for DX cameras, too. Recommended Thom's Review of the 40mm f/2 lens
