The Nikon Nikkor Z MC 105mm F2.8 VR S is a short telephoto macro prime lens for the company’s full-frame mirrorless Z mount. Offering several upgrades over previous generations, the new Z 105mm is being pitched as a versatile prime lens for everything from macro shooting to available light portraiture.
The new lens comes with 16 elements in 11 groups, including 1 aspherical element, and 3 ED (extra-low dispersion) elements to suppress chromatic aberrations. Special ARNEO coatings, in addition to the more traditional Nano Crystal coatings, are added to specifically reduce flare from incident light sources reaching the lens from a vertical direction. So how does it perform?
We’ve just added several more images to our previously published gallery of samples, including 1:1 and 1:2 macro shots.
