40mm f/2 (SE)

So small. So fast. So classic.
An iconic take on a small, fast, versatile lens.

Nikon's fast 40mm prime with a cool retro design.

This special edition of our 40mm f/2 prime is more than a lens—it’s a shooting style. Fast. In-the-moment. Improvisational. Its compact size and tactile feel make it a smooth operator, and its classic styling elevates the look of any Z camera. Combine that with the great low-light performance, beautiful bokeh and a natural angle of view of the original lens, and you’ve got a 40mm prime that really is special.

Stylish point of view on any Z series camera.

A full-frame standard prime, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) works—and looks—great on any Z series camera. On full-frame/FX format cameras like Z 6II and Z 5, it covers the sweet spot between 35mm and 50mm. On APS-C size/DX format cameras like Z fc, Z 50 and Z 30, it delivers a 60mm* field of view.

Shoot after hours.

Capture the mood of dimly lit situations with clarity and sharpness, and use faster shutter speeds to freeze action without sacrificing brightness.

Get in close.

Focus as close as 0.96 ft. from your subject and reveal the smallest details, ideal for food shots, plants and much more.

Dramatic depth.

Make your subject stand out against a beautifully blurred background. The shallow depth of field of f/2 is enhanced by the lens' 9 rounded blade diaphragm, creating a natural bokeh effect.

Nothing weighing you down.

At just 1.8 inches long and 6 ounces, you'll forget the lens is even there. It doesn't extend or retract, so it's always ready. Take it wherever you go as your main walk-around lens or as a lightweight second lens.

Great for video.

With its natural field of view, suppressed focus breathing, near-silent autofocus and a 9-rounded-blade iris that can be smoothly opened and closed using the click-less control ring, the NIKKOR Z 40mm f/2 (SE) is outstanding for videos of all types, from vlogs to cinematic films.

  • Fast, reliable focus.

    A new high-torque stepping motor operates at blazing fast speeds in near silence, whether using Eye-Detection AF or continuous subject tracking.

  • Customizable control.

    The smooth click-less control ring can be customized for the way you shoot. Use it for precise manual focusing or to adjust aperture, ISO or exposure compensation.

  • Dust and drip resistant.

    The lens barrel and all moving parts are designed carefully considering dust- and drip-resistant performance with sealing that prevents dust and water droplets from entering the lens.
