The new Nikkor Z mirrorless lenses from Nikon (MTF charts comparisons)


With the new Z6 and Z7 mirrorless cameras, Nikon also announced three new S-line mirrorless full frame lenses (additional information is available here):

The three new lenses are supposed to be very sharp based on the reports I have seen online and yes, they are not cheap. Keep in mind that the new S-line will be the top of the line series of mirrorless lenses (every S-line lens has Nano coating). A cheaper line of mirrorless lenses is rumored to be announced in the future. Let's do a quick price comparison with the Sony/Zeiss full frame mirrorless lenses:

Now, let's take a look at the MTF charts of the new S-line lenses - here are some comparisons with similar/current F-mount lenses:

Nikkor F-mount 35mm f/1.8 ($526.95) vs. Z-mount 35mm f/1.8 ($846.95) MTF charts:


Nikkor F-mount 50mm f/1.8 (216.95) vs. Z-mount 50mm f/1.8 ($596.95) MTF charts:


Some more MTF chart comparisons:


A lot of additional information on the new Z-mount can be found in the official Nikon brochure.

Next, I want to add a few links to various Nikon Z sample photos:
