Nikon Releases Prime Lens for Z-mount System


Nikon has announced the release of the Nikkor Z 40 mm f/2, a compact and lightweigh­t prime lens for Nikon full-frame cameras. The lens measures 45.5 mm long and weighs approximat­ely 170 g, with a versatile 40 mm standard angle of view. The focal length becomes 60 mm (equivalent to 35 mm [135] format) when mounted on a DX-format camera. It has a minimum focussing distance of 0.29 m, features a 9-blade iris diaphragm (round-shaped bokeh) and is dust and drip-resistant. It has adopted a STM (stepping motor) that reportedly enables quiet and accurate AF control and the control ring can be assigned functions such as aperture and exposure compensati­on. As of now, no pricing or availabili­ty related informatio­n has been shared by the company.
