Images have leaked of two, as yet un-announced, Nikkor ‘MC’ lenses; the full-frame Nikkor MC 105mm F2.8 VR S, and what looks to be a possible APS-C format Nikkor MC 50mm F2.8.
The ‘MC’ designation is not been used by Nikon previously but speculatively it’s mostly likely a true macro (1:1), without any de-focus image control ‘DC’ function, as per the older AF-Nikkor DC 105mm F2.0 D and 135mm F2.0 D models. At least, that’s the current view based on the images (the 50mm F2.8 has no obvious control ring for defocus control, though it could simply be a programmable function of the large focus-ring.
We likely won’t have long to find out, as the two lenses are likely to be revealed shortly. Information on the Nikon Z 9 is also expected to be revealed, ahead of the Tokyo Olympics.
