NIKKOR Z MC 105MM F/2.8 VR S PRIMARY FEATURES
CAPTURING EVERY FINE DETAIL
Achieve beautiful, soft and gentle bokeh with no visible colour bleed and minimal fringing even around the edges of the frame through the use of ED lens elements which suppresses chromatic aberration, while an aspherical lens element compensates for curvature of field from infinity to close-up, keeping details sharp even at the edges of the frame. A layer of Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat are added to effectively reduce flare and ghosting caused by backlighting.
The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S also adopts a multi-focus system with a new auto-focus (AF) drive system for increased optical performance which enables fast and accurate focusing, even with close-up shooting, allowing users to enjoy a stress-free shooting experience.
BROAD POWER OF EXPRESSION
Captivate your viewers with a vast possibility of visual expressions. The large maximum aperture of the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S allows users to dramatically emphasise the primary subject with a shallow depth of field, creating a large and smooth background bokeh while keeping the main subject in sharp focus.
Outstanding Vibration Reduction (VR) performance that compensates up to 4.5-stops enable users the option to shoot at a slower shutter speed while reducing camera shakes during low-light conditions. Combined with the in-camera body 5-axis image stabilisation system on selected camera models, it allows user to shoot in a broad range of situations, from up-close stills to video recording.
SUPERIOR FOCUSING PERFORMANCE
Capture those fleeting moments, even the smallest details quickly and accurately, with a newly developed small-diameter, powerful high-torque stepping motor (STM) on the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S. Extremely quiet with minimal lens operation sound, the lens will not easily startle insects and those elusive small-life creatures of nature.
With the introduction of the focus limit switch, it allows users to limit the AF search range between 0.29m to 0.5m for precise and faster image focusing when shooting close-up.
BUILT FOR EASE AND DURABILITY
Photographers who are always on the move will feel a difference when carrying the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S, which weighs at approximately 630g. Geared for different environments, the lens showcases its toughness and durability against dust and water droplets3 with the adoption of a rubber seal around the lens mount, while a layer of fluorine coating on the front lens element makes cleaning and repelling contaminants easier.
Exuberating elegance, the micro lens has its overall finishing in a satin texture and a touch of metallic element across the entire body; including a new look for the NIKKOR S line emblem. The display panel also provides easy accessibility to information such as aperture, shooting distance and depth of field at a glance.
The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is the lens to have to bring out the intrinsic details of the macro world.
 Measured in accordance with CIPA standards in NORMAL VR mode. The vibration reduction effect decreases as the shooting distance decreases.
