Nikon announces new macro glass, with more lenses coming
Nikon has announced the first macro lenses for mirrorless Z-series cameras, and confirmed another two new lenses are also in the pipeline.
By comparison, the longer MC 105mm offers a short minimum focusing distance of 29cm and Nikon says it will offer silent and smooth autofocus thanks to its multi-focus STM (Stepper Motor).
Nikon has also announced the development of two new primes for its full-frame mirrorless cameras: the Nikkor Z 28mm f/2.8 and Nikkor Z 40mm f/2.
The new macros lenses will be available from late June. No local pricing has been confirmed, but the Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S will sell for $999 (around AU$1,830), while the Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 will cost $649 (AU$1,190). The 28mm and 40mm lenses will be released this year.
