Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S Macro Lens Specifications

bythom nikon 105mm

Thom's Commentary: This lens is a Z-mount version of the oft-updated ~100mm Micro-Nikkor that's been around for ages in some form of Nikkor cladding. This new version gets all the S bells and whistles, and I find it slightly better than the already excellent F-mount version. A really solid performer that's a staple in many a pro's gear.
