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.

Nikon say several Z lenses including the 20, 24mm, 35mm and 85mm primes have a "multi focussing system".

What is new is mention of a newly developed stepping motor to help achieve "Extremely fast and precise AF control".

It is likely Nikon uses a different stepping motor in each lens.

It is also likely that faster stepping motors than when Z was launched 2.5 years ago are available.

Who makes the motors used by Nikon is another topic.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
