Re: The 50mm not an S lens

Noticed that, unlike the 105mm micro-Nikkor, the 50mm is not designated as an S lens. Wonder why? It's not the sort of lens where some compromise is inevitable.

My understanding is that longer focal lenses are desirable for professional macro lenses, due to the larger working distance between lens and subject.

The 50mm macro is primarily intended for people who want a lighter lens. Based on the MTF it also falls behind the 105 S in sharpness and bokeh (as it is not an S Lens).
