The MACRO APO-LANTHAR 65mm F2 Aspherical Z mount is a large-aperture macro lens compatible with full-frame (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras that employs the Nikon Z mount. By adopting an apochromatic design that minimizes axial chromatic aberration of RGB, which makes up the three primary colors of light, to zero, sharp imaging performance is achieved even at maximum aperture, and excellent image quality is achieved from the shortest shooting distance to distant motifs. Draw it out.

Main features

Designed exclusively for Nikon Z mount

Equipped with an optical system optimized for the image sensor of a mirrorless camera that uses the Nikon Z mount. This lens has a full-size image circle and can be used with both full-size (Nikon FX format) mirrorless cameras and APS-C size (Nikon DX format) mirrorless cameras.

Apochromatic design

In addition to thoroughly eliminating various types of aberration, including axial chromatic aberration, we pursue the ultimate performance in terms of resolution and contrast reproducibility.

Equipped with a floating mechanism

By adopting a floating mechanism that independently moves the lens groups according to the shooting position, stable image quality is ensured from the shortest shooting distance of 31 cm (magnification: 1/2x) to distant motifs.

Information communication with the body by electronic contact

An electronic contact is mounted on the lens mount, enabling electrical communication between the lens and the body. In addition to Exif information and in-body image stabilization (3-axis), three types of focusing support functions (focusing by changing the color of the focus point frame, focusing by peaking) are provided by combining a body that supports telecommunications and the latest firmware*1. , and focusing with the zoom button).

Manual focus for reliable focus operation

The use of an all-metal helicoid unit that has been processed and adjusted with high precision and high-quality grease that produces just the right amount of torque enables focusing with a smooth operating feel. It enables fine focus adjustment.

Beautiful bokeh with 10 aperture blades

A 10-blade diaphragm is used to make the hole formed by the diaphragm blades closer to a circle. Out-of-focus areas are rendered naturally, and point light sources are not polygonal but softly rounded.
