Nikon just announced the Zfc, a 21-megapixel Nikon Z mirrorless camera with an aps-c (DX) sized sensor and a retro stylized body. The Zfc was announced alongside a few lenses, including the development announcement of the DX 18-140mm f/3.5-6.3 VR from the roadmap.

I’ve tested a lot of macro lenses for Nikon cameras recently, which is lucky timing given the upcoming 50mm and 105mm Z-series macro lenses. We’ll test those two soon enough, but today, here’s a comparison of a half dozen popular macro lenses already on the market.
