This 105 mm S-Line mirrorless lens brings new levels of depth and clarity to macro and close-up shooting. Thanks to its incredible light-gathering and focusing capabilities, sharpness and contrast are superb—and so is bokeh. Sublime close-ups. Mesmerising portraits. From still photography to video work, you’ll set your subject apart like never before.
Soft, beautiful bokeh
This macro lens lets you create images with remarkable depth. The wide Z mount and f/2.8 rounded 9-blade aperture enable perfectly rounded, natural looking bokeh. You’ll capture lifelike close-ups with real character.
Clear at any distance
Sharpness is superb from close-up to infinity. Nikon’s anti-reflective ARNEO and Nano Crystal coatings combat ghosting and flare. In-lens Vibration Reduction (VR) combines with in-camera VR for steady handheld shots even in low light.
Fast, flawless focusing
Your area of focus is rendered sharply even when shooting with shallow depth of field. The superior optical construction dramatically reduces colour fringing, allowing the AF system to find focus with incredible speed and accuracy.
Reveal the secrets of a flower when the light is just right. Emphasise the subtle details that set a product apart. A minimum focus distance of just 0.29 m lets you focus precisely from closer quarters. The AF focus limiter allows faster acquisition of subjects within a 0.29–0.50 m range.
Always true to life
Optimised for macro and close-up work, the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S gives you precise control over shooting parameters and depth of field right from the lens barrel. In Manual focus, you can adjust the focus throw to match your preferred way of working.
Benefit from quiet AF and smooth, stable aperture control. Focus breathing is all but eliminated so you can shift focus without affecting the shot's angle of view.
You can reverse the focus direction of the NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S with ease.¹ It also accepts the same 62 mm screw-on filters as the renowned AF-S Micro-NIKKOR 105mm f/2.8G IF-ED.
