Nikon Announces Z 40mm f/2 (SE) Lens

Nikon Corporation today announced the launch of a compact and lightweight prime lens NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE), compatible with full-frame / FX format mirrorless digital cameras using the Nikon Z mount.

The Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 (SE) is a compact and lightweight prime lens with a traditional design that matches the Nikon Z fc body. The "(SE)" in the product name is an abbreviation for "Special Edition". The lens inherits the design of the classic NIKKOR lenses released at the same time as the Nikon FM2 film SLR camera, such as the knurled control ring. The NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) expands the selection of lenses that match the traditional design of the Z fc.

The optical performance of the Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 (SE) is identical to the Nikkor Z 40mm f/2. Users can easily enjoy beautiful circular blurred image expressions with the constant maximum aperture of f/2. The overall length of the lens is about 45.5mm and the weight is about 170g. It is small in size and light in weight, making it easy to carry around. The lens' 40mm focal length provides a highly versatile angle of view for a wide variety of scenes and subjects, including portraits with bokeh, snapshots, and still lifes. When used with an APS-C size/DX format camera such as the Z fc, the lens provides a mid-telephoto angle of view comparable to a 60mm lens (35mm [135] format), allowing the main subject to stand out.

The Nikkor Z 40mm f/2 (SE) is priced at 2,099 yuan and will be available in January next year.
