40mm DX-Format Macro Lens

Nikon have released a new 40mm DX-format macro lens for close-up photography that features a 1:1 reproduction and can focus as close as 0.163m (from focal plain). Its fast maximum aperture of f/2.8 will help you get sharper handheld shots in low light and the Silent Wave Motor (SWM) allows you to focus and shoot without disturbing your subject. If you want to over ride the autofocus simply use the M/A focus mode so you can manually tune the focus just the way you want, without the need to physically switch between auto and manual focus.

Measuring approx. 68.5×64.5mm and weighing approx. 235g, this lens features a metal mount with rubber sealing and is supplied with a lens hood HB-61 and soft lens case CL-0915.

Zurab Kiknadze, Product Manager Lenses, Accessories & Software, Nikon Europe said: “This specialised macro lens lets you capture intricate details that are impossible to capture with a regular kit lens. It’s an affordable way to discover the world of macro photography and is even versatile enough not to limit photographers to that particular subject.”

The AF-S DX Micro Nikkor 40mm f/2.8G lens has an RRP of £249.99 and it's available from 25 August 2011.

The suggested price of 250 is "interesting".
The USA launch price is $230.
Using an exchange rate of 1.6% and adding 27% for VAT and import duty comes to about 183 based on the USA price.

Does the USA price include US taxes? State / City taxes may apply?

according to the calculations, this Nikkor has almost same working distance as that of Nikkor 60mm lens.

I hope their design and manufacturing teams are more competent than their marketing department. What on earth is a "focal plain"? Hint to Nikon: it's "focal plane".

I click on to get more info on the new Nikon 40mm lens, ok.
Then I'm given 4 pieces of 'Related News' - only one of which is of any use at all to a Nikon user. What does 'Related' mean in American? In English it means - To have a connection.
Waste of your space.
