I love being able to use my F mount lenses with the Z6 I now own. This adapter works flawlessly with lenses that can handle it.. D lenses will require manual focusing That being said I am waiting for Nikon and others to start producing more and more Z mount lenses. That´s why I gave it 4 stars, I´d prefer not using it at all, but I love it´s convenience and performance.
I had been on the fence about a new body as a backup for my D800. There was a lot of hype about Sony´s mirrorless, and it was looking attractive. When the news broke that the Nikon Z series was coming, I held out for it to hit the market, and I haven´t looked back. The FTZ adaptor was a key selling point for my Z6 because it makes all my F-mount lenses usable on the Z6 body.
This rig went out on the road the entire month of February, and I was NOT disappointed. From Mayan Ruins to snorkeling to dogsledding to watching the northern lights, I was able to shoot what I wanted when I wanted.
Honestly, I was worried that I´d find the FTZ to be clunky and cumbersome, and while I do occasionally have to juggle my tripod mount and Spider strap because I´m going from the Z-mount lens to using the FTZ w/ an F-mount lens, it´s not as burdensome as I thought it would be.
I´ve been shooting for 43 years, and I´ve shot Nikon for 42 of those years. They hit the mark. I would buy this all over again.
Have used on all my F mount lenses, 24/120, 50 m/m 1.4, 105 Macro. No problems encountered.
I attached the FTZ to our Nikon Z7 and Nikon 105mm f/2.8G ED-IF AF-S VR Micro NIKKOR Lens to digitize 35mm slides. The FTZ adapter did exactly what I needed it to do...It enabled me to use an existing Nikon macro lens.
Had I not had a polarizing filter to use with my Nikon lenses, I would be another person requesting revised models of the FTZ adapter to include a chamber for filters/gels.
I purchased the Z7 with a FTZ mount so I could utilize my existing Nikon FX F mount and Nikon compatible lenses. As advertised, the mount works flawlessly with extremely sharp images as a reward for trying yet another fantastic Nikon product. I still like my D850, and earlier D810´s and D750´s. Knowing that I can use the equipment already in my case with the newest tech designs, can only leave you with another sense of satisfaction for having chosen Nikon. With the Z7 and FTZ mount, Nikon is bringing it´s ´´A´´ game. It certainly makes it hard for anyone using one not to have a smile with the results.
a quality well made piece of equipment
work well and feels nice and solid
When I first heard that an adapter would be required to use my Nikon lenses with the new mirrorless bodies I was disappointed because, for me, mirrorless means smaller and lighter. However, now that I have used the adapter, I have found that it is a non-issue. It works perfectly with all my lenses and the size and weight is a non factor. It extends out from the body just slightly more than the grip and it actually looks good! It´s a good system and I will have no problem using my f lens for the foreseeable future.
All of my F mount lenses, including non-Nikon, work great. Even my DX lenses work very well since the Z6 automatically switches to DX mode and scales the image to the sceen. Lenses without a motor are auto focus on the FTZ, but since the Z6 has focus peaking, manual focus is easy now.
I recently purchased a new Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera with a FTZ adapter to replace my well-used D750 before taking a month long trip to Africa. The D750 had lots of miles on it and I didn´t want to take the chance of a failure in a dusty, hot environment. The Z7 performed flawlessly and I believe I took some of my best photos ever with it. Aside from a few ounces of extra weight, the FTZ adapter worked as though it was an integral part of the camera and was compatible with all my lenses from my small primes to my 500mm telephoto (both Nikon and Sigma). If you are thinking about going mirrorless and have already invested in Nikon gear then you should seriously consider this amazing 46MP combination.
