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.
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 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.
Beautiful, Beautiful Bokeh
The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S isn’t only about the technical; it’s focused on aesthetics and style, too. Wide open at f/2.8, it creates a beautifully artistic background blur, or bokeh effect—gentle, soft and round without discernible edges and no “onion rings” or spirals.
A Flare for the Dramatic
Don’t back down to dramatic backlit situations. Nikon’s two innovative anti-reflective coatings, Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat, keep images sharp and clear by minimizing ghost and flare effects. Boldly shoot directly into harsh light sources with confidence.
Stack your Shots
Use the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S on a Z series camera with the Focus Shift Mode, and create hyper-detailed images that would be impossible to achieve with optics alone. (Requires third party image stacking software.)
Take a Longer, Beautiful Look
The 105mm focal length creates a signature look that’s ideal for framing portraits. Bring attention to your subject with the stunning foreground/background compression of the 105mm look.
