It is interesting to note Nikons statement about AF-speed: "Extremely fast and precise AF control is achieved by using a newly developed stepping motor (STM) and multi-focusing system."

This may indicate that future premium Nikon lenses will have improved AF speed.

They all have this motor design as a feature of the Z lenses.

You could have checked the specifications before comment on likely AF speed improvements

Nikon say "Extremely fast and precise AF control is achieved by using a new developed stepping motor (STM) and multi-focusing system"

Ricci describes the AF speed on a pre-production model as much faster than the F mount version

That is not new to the 105 macro! That was my point. Nikon has touted this from 2018 for the Z lenses.

"The NIKKOR Z 24-70mm f/2.8 S incorporates an all-new multi-focusing system, consisting of two AF drive units precisely synchronized..."

The same is true of the 70-200 even though they don't state it on its page.
