Along with Nikon Nikkor Z MC 50mm F2.8 lens (Amazon/ B&H/ Adorama), Nikon also announced the new Nikon NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S Lens. It provides a versatile 105mm focal length, a close working distance, and a true 1:1 reproduction ratio. Fill the frame with all the details of intimate moments, jewelry, food, flowers, products, nature, wildlife, and more. Made for professionals, this lens doubles as an outstanding portrait lens as well, making it an ideal lens for weddings and special events.
The lens features a minimum focusing distance of 11.4″ to suit working with close-up subjects, and a bright f/2.8 maximum aperture lets you confidently work in low light conditions. A Dual Motor Multi Focus STM System with manual focus override provides fast and responsive autofocus, and the multi focus system also reduces chromatic aberration and color fringing common among macro lenses. A VR image stabilization system minimizes the appearance of camera shake by 4.5 stops for shooting handheld in difficult lighting conditions. The lens is designed with a customizable control ring for changing aperture, exposure compensation, and ISO, and a L-Fn button is also provided for customization. Nano Crystal and ARNEO coatings prevent ghosting, flare, and reflections when working in brightly illuminated and backlit scenes. Additionally, a fluorine coating reduces dirt, water, and smudges from sticking to the surface of the lens.
