Yeah, it’s a shame that the MC 105 doesn’t take the TC-Z’s. Still, yet - the MC 105 appears to be sharper than the “G” version, and the price was lower than I’d expected, so I’m excited to get my hands on a copy!

Yes I am puzzled about the TC-Zs given that there is no long macro on the road map. Perhaps it will in fact work with them, we will have to see.

In Ricci's video preview of the 105mm macro, he explicitly points out that it cannot accept the 1.4x TC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7RJh7VZrjA4

Take a look at the cross-sectional diagram of the 105 Z, towards the bottom of that page: https://imaging.nikon.com/lineup/lens/z-mount/z_mc105mmf28_vr_s/spec.htm

There is a (blue) aspherical element right at the mount. That blocks the protruding front element of the TC.

That's a shame. Unless there is a secret long macro announcement coming.

Why not just use a tube if you want more magnification? Or do you want more working distance?

working distance, a long macro would not b expected to increase magnification.  More specifically, I need reach, hence the need for a telephoto macro
