AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G sparks Nikonians interest

logo_nikon.gifThe recent announcement of a new DX lens from Nikon has sparked a range of opions and and conclusions in one of our Master Your Lenses forums. They range all the way from "useless" to a show of faith by Nikon in the DX format.

40mm-f2-8-size_250.jpgAccording to the Nikon press release: The new AF-S DX Micro NIKKOR 40mm f/2.8G lens has a minimum focusing distance of just 0.53 feet (6.4 inches) to allow users to capture extreme close-up photographs and High Definition (HD) video with a life-size 1:1 reproduction ratio.

Our members have been sharing their thoughts on this lens in the Nikkor Autofocus Lenses forum.

What's your opinion? Let us know.
