Diff. in use of Z 105 vs old F 105


For an friend I have to ask the following, as I am not near him and have therefore not experienced himself what he asks about.

He has a Z50 camera with FTZ-2 and a Nikon AF-S VR Micro-Nikkor 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED and a Tamron 60mm macro lens.

Both optics behave similarly in terms of shutter speeds, aperture and ISO etc. But now he bought a NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S which behaves completely different.

The Z105 lets in much more light, so with the same shutter speed and aperture you get a much lower ISO etc. It's so much better that he actually wonders about it.

If I compare my own F lens 70-200F2.8 and the Z lens 28-200F4-6.3 at 200mm and same aperture and shutter speed, I don't think I have any difference in light and ISO.

Is this normal?
