Quality you can see. Literally: The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S bears the S-Line designation, reserved for premium NIKKOR Z lenses with the most advanced optics, beautiful bokeh, superior resolution and high contrast.
Go 1:1 with the world: A true 1:1 maximum reproduction ratio means objects appear at life size through the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S. Boldly capture details invisible to the naked eye with this macro lens. Plus, the 105mm mid-telephoto focal length lets you capture these details from a safe distance—ideal for insects and other wildlife.
Technically speaking, amazing: Exploring new worlds comes with some risks. For macro shooting, that commonly means color fringing at the edges of high-contrast subjects. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S’S innovative optical design, powered by a new multi-focus system, virtually eliminates chromatic aberrations for clearer, sharper images with no color fringing.
Live on the edge: When you’re filling the frame with fine details, sharpness counts, even at the edges. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S compensates for field curvature, ensuring clarity and sharpness across the entire frame. It’s ideal for reproducing printed artwork, documents, signage and more.
Two lenses in one: The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S doubles as a superb portrait lens. Its 105mm mid-telephoto focal length is in the sweet spot for portrait work. Its f/2.8 maximum aperture lets you separate your subject from a softly blurred background. And its 5-axis image stabilization when used with a compatible Z series camera is ideal for in-the-moment handheld shooting.
Unshakable confidence: Pursue insects, plants and other nature handheld in the field. With 4.5 stops* of VR and 5-axis compensation when paired with a compatible Z series mirrorless camera, the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lets you be spontaneous and confident all at once.
Get closer: Get as close as 0.96 ft. (0.29m) from your subject with full AF performance. An innovative new multi-focus system powered by an ultra-quiet stepping motor (STM) smoothly focuses from close-range to infinity with outstanding accuracy and silent operation.
Sensitive to detail: The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is fine-tuned for close-distance focusing. A new autofocus algorithm accounts for minute distance changes that alter the effective aperture, maximizing the resolving power of the S-Line optics.
Keep your focus tight: When working at close distances, flip the limiter switch to prevent focus searching by constraining the autofocus range from 0.3m to 0.5m. Turn it off and enjoy the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S’s full focusing range from close-up to infinity.
