Capture every moment with the ever-versatile NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2

Turn everyday moments into works of art and easily achieve exceptional image quality for ultimate creative expression

SINGAPORE – Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. introduces the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2, an all-purpose prime lens that delivers superior optical performance and impressive bokeh expression all packed into its compact and lightweight body. Combined with the next generation Z lens design that features a smooth satin finish, this lens slips right into your bag as the perfect companion to capture every key moment.

“The versatile NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 makes capturing a spectrum of subjects and scenes seamless as it offers new dimension in image quality, low-light performance and ability to produce stunning bokeh. Be it capturing moments up close or from a distance, users can add an impressive edge to their visual imagery with soft, creamy bokeh that brings out the beauty of every moment,” said Horie Masahiro, Managing Director of Nikon Singapore Pte. Ltd. 



Make the most out of the compact mirrorless system with its small size and astonishingly light weight of approximately 170g that make going about easier for those who love to capture their day-to-day moments, without compromising on all-round performance with bokeh expression and standard focal length.

Having adopted a motor with a small-diameter, high-torque stepping motor (STM), the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 strikes a perfect balance between compactness and efficiency for users to enjoy its fast and accurate focusing, and quiet autofocus (AF) control mechanism. Coupled with the lens’ dust- and drip-resistant performance[1], take this latest addition to the NIKKOR Z line-up wherever you go to capture every imagery in sharp details.


With the 40mm flexible angle of view, capture your stories across a wide variety of scenes, from vibrant cityscapes to intimate portraits, and experience superior optical performance even as you get closer to your subject as desired with the minimum focus distance of 0.29m.

Bring out your subjects from the scene and make them stand out with an aesthetically pleasing, soft, creamy, rounded bokeh in the background, with the lens’ f/2 aperture and adoption of 9 aperture blades. The fast maximum aperture delivers fast shutter speed to shoot quickly, even in low-light environments, and prevents minimal camera-shake for sharper shots that utilise the expression achieved with stunning bokeh.

Day to night, from immortalising fast-paced street photography in the city to golden-hour moments at the beach, users can capture every moment and effortlessly elevate them by bringing the beauty of bokeh to life.


With the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2, users can find the process of toggling back and forth between photo-taking and video recording modes much easier, ensuring that capturing precious, picturesque moments with their loved ones can be effortlessly done.

Built for videography, the lens’ impressive quiet operation prevents lens drive and operation noise from being recorded, and its superb operability allows filming with a natural shift in focus position and brightness level – allowing users to record their surroundings with clarity and in-person like qualities. The lens also eases users’ filming experiences to deliver smooth and natural movies with a focus-breathing reduction feature which prevents a shift in the angle of view when trying to acquire focus, and a stabilised exposure during aperture changes.

With the filming capabilities that this lens provides, reminiscing memorable moments like one’s engagement, a backpacking trip or get-together with loved ones can now be a lot more immersive.

In November 2018, Nikon announced its milestone achievement of 110 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.
