The Nikon NIKKOR Z MC 105mm F2.8 VR S is a short telephoto macro prime lens for Nikon's full-frame mirrorless Z mount. Offering several upgrades over previous generations, the new Z 105mm is being pitched as a versatile prime lens for everything from macro shooting to available light portraiture.

The new lens comes with 16 elements in 11 groups, including 1 aspherical element, and 3 ED (extra-low dispersion) elements to suppress chromatic aberrations. Special ARNEO coatings, in addition to the more traditional Nano Crystal coatings, are added to specifically reduce flare from incident light sources reaching the lens from a vertical direction. So how does it perform? We've been shooting with a production sample for a few days and we've put together a small gallery of sample images. Watch this space for more samples in the coming days, but in the meantime, check out our initial sample gallery at the link below.
