The new Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lens will be out of stock for months





I received some information from US-based authorized dealers that the interest for the new Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S lens exceeded all expectations. The pre-order lists are already long. Given the current global shortage and “out of stock” label for many Nikon products, you should expect several months wait time for the new 105mm Z lens if you have not placed an order already:

Nikkor Z MC 105mm f/2.8 VR S:

Nikkor Z MC 50mm f/2.8:

Expect an official statement on the delay and the large number of pre-orders from Nikon soon.

Additional coverage of the new macro lenses can be found here.

Nikon’s latest Nikkor Z mirrorless lens roadmap: 20 lenses announced, 7 more to come


In the latest Nikkor Z mirrorless lens roadmap Nikon already has 6 cameras 20 mirrorless lenses announced (without counting the two Z teleconverters) and 7 more lenses are coming:

  • Nikkor Z DX 18-140mm
  • Nikkor Z 24-105mm S-Line
  • Nikkor Z 85mm S-Line (f/1.2?)
  • Nikkor Z 100-400mm S-Line
  • Nikkor Z 200-600mm
  • Nikkor Z 400mm S-Line (f/2.8?)
  • Nikkor Z 600mm S-Line (f/4?)

In multiple interviews Nikon confirmed that they expect to have 30 lenses by the end of 2022 – so we may get one or two new lenses that are not on the current roadmap (depending if they count the teleconverters as lenses). A new super-telephoto Z lens will be announced together with the Nikon Z9 later this year.
