Nikon 40mm f/2.8 AF-S Micro-Nikkor Review

Another fun lens review from DigitalRev TV from Hong Kong.  The announcer is a bit quirky, but actually good stuff, and fun to watch  Also, since I used to live in Hong Kong I love seeing areas I used to walk around with camera in hand.

If you were thinking about a DX 40mm speedy macro lens for your Nikon kit, this may be your ticket.  Forget about the pink Nikon D7000 in the video.  This is their thing, just focus on the lens.  Anyway who in their right mind would paint a nice camera like a D7000??

I would only recommend getting this lens if you want the macro feature.  If all you are looking for is a 40mm prime range and macro isn't important then I would highly recommend sticking with the AF-S Nikkor 35mm f/1.8G or the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G or the newer f/1.8G.  Sure it's not 40mm or 60mm equivalent, but it's a great compromise.
