Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8


If you’re looking for a fresh new photography genre, Nikon has the answer with a pair of Nikkor Z MC lenses. Nikon has announced the Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and the Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lenses. Both lenses are exclusively designed for Nikon’s full-frame Z Mount and join a growing list of spectacular glass for Nikon’s mirrorless range of cameras. These are the 17th and 18th native Z lenses for the Nikon mirrorless range.

Macro photography has long since lost its reputation as being too tricky a genre to take on. It is now more accessible than ever, thanks to camera and lens tech advancements. Provided you have the patience and no fear of creepy crawlies; macro photography is an ideal pursuit if you are looking for a new challenge. What’s more, Nikon has just brought macro photography within reach of Nikon Z Mount fans. The release of two new MC lenses provides enthusiasts and professional photographers with greater choice and flexibility in setting up their kit. 

Nikon has a long and successful history of making high-precision optical lenses for its cameras. Nikon lenses were big beasts that intimidated even the toughest of photographers in the glory days of SLR and DSLR. But the new Nikon Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and the Nikon Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lenses are built for a new generation. A generation of photographers that are conscious about the size and weight of their kit. Fortunately, the new MC 50mm f/2.8 and MC 105mm /f2.8 micro lenses are compact and lightweight.

Nikkor Z MC 50mm – The Perfect Nifty-Fifty


If you are looking for a macro lens for your Z Mount Nikon but want to keep a light kit, the Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is for you. The lens is one of the lightest and smallest lenses Nikon has ever produced – making those early-day beasts look like giants. The Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 is tiny and pocketable at 74.5mm in diameter and 66mm long. What’s more, it only weighs 260g making it the perfect lens to have tucked in your bag for rainy days. It’s the lightest Z Mount prime lens in the range.

The size and stature of the Z MC 50mm f/2.8 should not diminish your faith in the ability of this tiny lens. It is built with true Nikon precision and meets the usual standard of performance. With a solid build, the 50mm f/2.8 is a highly versatile macro lens allowing you to get up close and personal at just 50mm. Of course, being a 50mm focal range, it’s also a great all-purpose lens suited to capturing stunning and sharp portraits. 

One of the most important aspects of any macro lens is its reproduction ratio. The Nikon Z MC 50mm f/2.8 delivers a true to life 1:1 ratio – what you see is literally what you get. Internally, the focusing system is silent thanks to the Silent Step Motor (STM). In addition, it features an AF limiter switch to shorten the focusing range between 0.16m and 0.3m. As a result, you’ll achieve faster focus on subjects that are ready to dash.  To repel dust, moisture and oil from fingerprints the Z MC 50mm f/2.8 features a fluorine coating that’s also easy to clean.


Final Thoughts on the Nikkor Z MC Pair


Nikon has made an obvious statement with their recent moves in the mirrorless camera market. The current Mark II versions with the popular Nikon Z Six Two and Z Seven Two have further cemented their intention to take their share of this evolving space. What’s more, Nikkor Z lenses are proving to lead the new generation of mirrorless glass. The Nikon Z MC lenses release is yet another shot across the bow of Nikon’s competition. 

But camera brand politics aside, the Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8 and the Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lenses have set yet another new standard. This Nikkor Z MC duo provides you with choice and flexibility in your photography projects with an impressive set of specs and superb image quality.
