Nikon announces some new lenses for the Z family. The two compact and lightweight prime lenses NIKKOR Z 28 mm f/2.8 and NIKKOR Z 40 mm f/2 are currently in development. The pancakes, which are designed for full-frame, are expected to be launched in October; there are no more precise details about the optics as yet.
Compact primes for Nikon Z
Already now in June, the first two macro lenses for Nikon Z cameras will appear. The NIKKOR Z MC 105 mm f/2.8 VR S offers a 1:1 magnification, f/2.8 speed, image stabilizer and "almost completely eliminated" focus breathing. The closest focusing distance is 0.29 m. An AF focus limiter enables fast subject acquisition in the range of 0.29 to 0.50 cm.The direction of rotation during focusing can be reversed if required.

The multi-focusing system is said to work "almost noiselessly", the iris control "quietly", which should be taken into account when shooting video if necessary. The aperture consists of nine rounded blades. Color fringing is largely reduced, according to Nikon, and ARNEO and Nano Crystal Coatings reduce reflections as well as flare and ghosting. The bayonet and all moving parts are sealed to prevent dust and moisture ingress, while Nikon's fluorine coating on the front lens repels water, dust and dirt. // UVP 1,099 EUR
Weighing 260g, the NIKKOR Z MC 50mm f/2.8 presents itself as an all-rounder, offering a variable image ratio of 1:4, 1:2 or 1:1 (life size); markings on the extending lens barrel indicate the current mode. The closest focusing distance is 0.16 m from the sensor plane. This lens also has an image stabilizer, a 2.8 aperture with 9 rounded blades, a focus limiter switch, but only the front lens is coated (fluorine coating). // RRP 729 EUR
