Nikon today announced the release of the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S, a mid-telephoto micro lens compatible with full-frame (Nikon FX-format) mirrorless cameras for which the Nikon Z mount has been adopted. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S belongs to the S-Line (S-Line is a title given to a highly complete lens that has achieved high resolution from full aperture, beautiful bokeh that creates a three-dimensional effect, and excellent aberration correction by generously pouring the latest optical technology) of NIKKOR Z lenses.

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm F/2.8 VR S and the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8, also announced today, are the first NIKKOR Z micro lenses. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S supports a minimum focus distance of 0.29 m and a maximum reproduction ratio of 1.0, while delivering the high performance required of a mid-telephoto micro lens in a wide variety of scenes, from life-size photography to the capture of landscapes and portraits for which the mid-telephoto focal length is perfectly suited.

Adoption of the Z mount, that takes in abundant light due to its large diameter, realizes optical performance superior to that of the existing F-mount lens with the same focal length and maximum aperture, the AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is highly operable, as well as strong and durable, offering superior dust- and drip-resistance. Further, a new exterior design that pursues a high-quality look and feel has been adopted.

An effective lens structure uses one aspherical lens element and three ED glass elements, and a multi-focusing system ensure thorough suppression of chromatic aberration from near to far shooting distances.

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is an ideal lens for professional and advanced amateur photographers, supporting capture of a wide variety of subjects and scenes, from the finest details in plants and insects to portraits and landscapes that utilize its mid-telephoto focal length.
