Bright f/2 standard prime lens

Want your subjects to act naturally? This affordable 40 mm full-frame mirrorless lens is sharp, fast, and small enough to wield discreetly. From vlog to vibrant snapshot, you’ll get great results even in low light.

The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 renders stills and movies with beautiful detail, depth, and colour. Its natural angle of view is ideal for candid portraits, as well as interviews and how-to videos. Without a big lens in their face, your subjects will feel free to act naturally, and it’s so small and light you can even use this lens for filming engaging first-person perspectives.

Sharp focus, soft backgrounds
Draw attention to your subject with a softly blurred, super-creamy background. The wide Z mount and f/2 rounded 9-blade aperture give you bokeh that really makes your images stand out. Artful brilliance has never been easier.
Great up close
From portraits to close-up sequences in a how-to video, this lens delivers stunning sharpness even up close. A minimum focus distance of just 0.29 m lets you focus sharply even with the camera just 29 cm away from your subject.
Perfect for video

Shooting video? This 40 mm prime lens renders richly detailed footage, and you can focus in silence. Focus breathing is dramatically reduced so you can adjust focus without noticeably affecting the shot's angle of view.

Quiet please

Powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor and enhanced by the additional light gathered by the Z mount, focusing is fast, accurate—and silent. Great for stills and even better for video: you can use your Z camera's outstanding autofocus without focusing sounds disturbing a moment or ruining a scene.

When used on a Z series full-frame mirrorless camera, this prime lens offers a standard 40 mm angle of view. Perfect for candid portraits, vlogs, and interviews.

When used on a Z series DX mirrorless camera, this prime lens offers a 60 mm angle of view. Perfect for posed portraits and frame-filling close ups.
