Larger Than Life Excellence

Let your subjects take centre stage with beautiful bokeh shots.

With the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S, capture attention-grabbing images with its immaculate construction. Containing ED lens elements that suppress chromatic aberrations, and an aspherical lens element that compensates for the curvature of view from infinity to up close, keep the focus sharp from edge to edge, no matter the subject. The Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat application also further reduce flaring and ghosting in backlit situations.

The lens adopts a new multi-focus AF drive system that utilises multiple drive units for fast and accurate auto-focusing, even when shooting macro for a stress-free experience.

Great for macro photography, the lens has outstanding vibration reduction (VR2) performance and can compensate up to 4.5-stops when paired with the in-camera body 5-axis image stabilisation3, allows for smoother shooting at slower shutter speeds. Furthermore, a maximum f/2.8 aperture lets the user achieve great image quality with lesser image noise even in dark situations.

The mid-telephoto NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lens is adept at capturing anything from marvellous macro images to luscious landscapes, and intimate up-close portraits. With a minimum focusing distance of 0.29m, get even closer to your subject and use bokeh to your advantage while keeping a sharp focus on your subject.


Focusing Performance

Highly accurate, incredibly precise. Experience the reliability of the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S while in the field. Great for capturing small life forms such as insects, the new small-diameter, high-torque STM motor adopted is quick to lock on and extremely quiet, so as not to disturb your subject. The lens also has a focus limit switch, allowing you to limit the distance search range from 0.29m to 0.5m to acquire focus quickly when shooting macro.

Designed with video recording in mind, enjoy enhanced operational feel with natural focus shifting and focus breathing-reduction with an improved control ring. The adoption of a new STM stepping motor and drive mechanism allows you to fine-tune focus movement – giving you unparalleled precision when filming a subject.



Excellent Contrast Created By Beautiful Bokeh And Outstanding Resolution

Beautiful bokeh and exquisite definition at the focal plane are particularly crucial in macro photography. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S achieves both at an amazingly high level, creating a great contrast between the two elements within images that direct viewers’ attention to the subject. Bokeh is natural and beautiful thanks to minimized chromatic aberration. The lens delivers overwhelmingly high resolution whether at infinity or life-size (1x) closeup. Taking advantage of the Z mount, featuring the largest* diameter among full-frame mirrorless cameras and the short flange focal distance, the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S provides optical performance superior even to that of the highly evaluated AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.


Refined Bokeh Characteristics With No Color Bleed Or Fringing

The exclusively designed lens construction of the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S incorporating three ED glass elements effectively compensates axial chromatic aberration across the entire shooting range, delivering soft and gentle bokeh without colour bleed or fringing while preventing onion-ring bokeh. Also, adopting a large-diameter aspherical lens element suppresses the curvature of the field to ensure sharp focus even at the edges of the frame. Being able to employ a large-diameter aspherical lens as a rear element and to place elements close to the image sensor also contribute to the superb performance.


Multi-focusing System Suppresses Axial Chromatic Aberration While Realizing Fast And Accurate Af

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S adopts Nikon’s multi-focusing system, an advanced system that utilizes multiple AF drive units working together to accurately control the positioning of multiple focus groups. The AF is fast and accurate even with macro photography, which requires a large amount of lens-group movement. This focusing system also helps to improve imaging performance across the entire shooting range, including short distances, by effectively suppressing axial chromatic aberration, contributing to clear rendering with no colour bleed.


Fast F/2.8 Aperture Contributes To Clear Images Even Under Low Light

In addition to creating beautiful bokeh, the maximum aperture at f/2.8* is effective for shooting indoors in low-light conditions. You can use higher shutter speeds to avoid image blur caused by camera shake, enabling the capture of sharp, clear images with minimal noise without increasing ISO sensitivity.


Nano Crystal Coat And Arno Coat Ensure Great Images Even In Backlit Situations

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S adopts Nano Crystal Coat and ARNEO Coat, which effectively reduce flare and ghost, regardless of the direction from which light enters the lens, delivering sharp and clear images even when a light source is located within the frame.


The S-line Title Assures Advanced Performance

Recognized as an S-Line lens, the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is designed to deliver advanced performance that exceeds Nikon’s strict design guidelines and quality standards.


Short Minimum Focus Distance Of 0.29m

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S features a minimum focus distance of approx. 0.29m. Taking advantage of this and the very shallow depth of field at short focus distances, you can approach very close to a subject and capture it dynamically with large bokeh in the background.


A Medium-telephoto Lens With Fast Aperture And Vr That Expands The Range Of Expression

Delicate macro photography and landscape photography can be ruined by the slightest camera shake. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S comes equipped with an optical vibration-reduction (VR) system offering a powerful effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 4.5 stops* faster. Combined with the 105-mm focal length, which is also optimum for landscapes and portraits in addition to closeups, the lens offers a variety of expression with clear, high-resolution images.


4.5-stops, 5-axis Compensation For Super-stable Shots

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is equipped with a VR system that offers a powerful effect equivalent to a shutter speed of 4.5 stops faster*.

The combination in-camera VR stabilizes movement along 5-axis (Yaw/Pitch/Horizontal/Vertical/Roll). Especially, reducing the horizontal and vertical movements that are so noticeable as the reproduction ratio increases supports comfortable shooting macro photography.


Perfect For Landscapes And Portraits In Addition To Macro Photography

Microlenses are bifocal with a broader range of focus distances and they can focus at shorter distances than standard lenses. The 105-mm, medium-telephoto focal length delivers impressive expression by highlighting the contrast between beautiful bokeh and sharp focus in landscape photography and portraits, in addition to macro photography.


Fast And Accurate Af, And Finely Adjustable Mf

Accurate focusing is difficult but critical in macro photography. The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S delivers high-precision AF thanks to a stepping motor (STM) and algorithm newly developed for this lens, as well as the multi-focusing system. A focus range limit function reduces time and stress in close-up shooting. The manual focusing has also been improved, making it easier to make small adjustments more precisely.


Powerful New Stm Enables Quick, Accurate Focusing

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S employs a small-diameter, high-torque STM. This newly developed motor is compact but powerful and realizes quick, accurate focusing with reduced driving sound. A new driving mechanism designed for this motor follows the fine movement of lens elements while ensuring reliability with proven shock resistance.


Focus Range Limiter Convenient For Macro Photography

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lets you limit the AF search range to focus distances between 0.29m and 0.5m with its focusing limit switch. This shortens the time for refocusing during close-up shooting.


New Af Algorithm For More Accurate Focusing

The NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S’s AF performance attains higher accuracy, powered by a new algorithm. It focuses precisely even when effective aperture changes according to changes in focus distance.


Mf With Minute Control

You can achieve extremely accurate manual focus with the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S as it facilitates minute adjustments with improved operability of the focus ring.
