The Nikon 40mm f/2.8 AF-S DX Micro

The 40mm f/2.8 DX Micro is a very nice “all-around” prime lens. Although it doesn’t have the very wide aperture of some primes, f/2.8 is still more than adequate for most conditions. The focal length on a DX camera is good for street shooting, full-length portraits, and outdoor architectural shots, and it gives you a Macro lens in your bag suitable for close-up work (and it’s a true 1:1 macro, not just sort-of-macro). Plus, it’s small and lightweight, so it doesn’t take up a ton of room in your bag, and it’s inexpensive, so it doesn’t take up a lot of room in your budget.

Roger's Take

Personally, I find short macro lenses difficult to work with because you have to get so close to the subject. But at this price, with the superb image quality this lens has, it’s really a compelling lens for anyone shooting a DX camera. Heck, it’s even weather sealed. Even if you don’t really want to shoot macros, this is a great little lens.
