    Nikon introduces the first two macro lenses to join the Nikon Z family. The impressively lightweight NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is a professional S-line macro lens capable of stunningly lifelike depth and detail. The NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is a compact, lightweight, and versatile lens that’s ideal for starting macro photographers who want to shoot vibrant close-ups.

    With its 1:1 reproduction ratio, flawless focusing, and superb rendering abilities, the professional NIKKOR Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S is a master of the life-size shot. Optimised for macro shooting in stills or video, its medium-telephoto angle of view also makes it a stunning lens for detailed portraiture: sharpness and contrast are incredible, and so is bokeh. Control is precise and flexible, and photographers can reverse the focus direction of this lens, which is an advantage when working in a mixed production environment.

    The new NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is a great portable lens capable of bringing out the beauty in even the most ordinary subjects. From enticing food photography to top shots of flowers, photographers can capture super-sharp life-size (1:1) macro images and striking close-ups of small subjects and details with ease. Focus is fast and sharp, even when the front of this macro lens is just 5.6 cm away from a subject! Users can also take advantage of the classic 50 mm focal length and natural perspective to shoot anything from portraits to street scenes.

    Rob Harmon, Senior Commercial Lead, Nikon Northern Europe, says: “The long-awaited 105 mm macro lens brings astonishingly beautiful macro performance to the Z system, and is a perfect choice for both professionals and macro enthusiasts. Its smaller and more affordable sibling has a lot to offer too: the new 50 mm macro lens is ideal if you want to start shooting true macro images. And if you simply want a versatile 50 mm lens that will also let you capture incredible close-ups, then this is it.”

    Donna Crous, food photographer and Nikon Europe Ambassador says: “I was fortunate enough to get to work with the new NIKKOR Z 105mm macro lens whilst shooting the Create Your Light campaign with Nikon. I was completely blown away by its performance, particularly in lower light. Definitely a staple lens for any food photographer who values shallow depth of field, focusing speed, and beautiful bokeh—because we all love those beautiful bokeh balls!”

    Summary of key features: NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8

    Awesome macro shots: markings on the lens barrel clearly indicate whether shooting at a 1:4, 1:2, or 1:1 (life-size) magnification ratio.

    Brilliant everyday shots: take advantage of the classic 50 mm focal length and natural perspective to shoot anything from portraits to street scenes.

    Tack-sharp up close: a minimum focus distance of just 0.16 m enables sharp focus even when the front of this macro lens is just 5.6 cm away from a subject! In-camera VR keeps shots steady.

    Bring out your subject: superior optics and the f/2.8 rounded 9-blade aperture enable beautiful bokeh.

    Focus limit switch: the AF focus limit switch lets the lens focus more quickly on subjects within a 0.16–0.30 m range.

    Compact and lightweight: this lens is easy to handle and balances beautifully on both Z series full-frame and DX-format cameras.

    75 mm in DX crop: when used on a Z series DX mirrorless camera, this lens offers a 75 mm angle of view. Great for portraits or tighter crops of small subjects when shooting macro.

    Precise, easy control: control aperture, ISO, and more via the silent control ring. Instantly switch between manual and autofocus via the lens.

    Protective coating: Nikon’s fluorine coating protects the front of the lens and makes it easy to wipe the surface clean. Perfect if your creative playground is outside.
