    Works great

    Posted by Analia Palmer on January 14, 2024

    I worked great with my Z5- only used it once with my nikkor 50mm- it gets too heavy but it works great.

    It works exactly as advertised, use with confidence. It accepts my Ai and pre-Ai Nikkors with no issues whatsoever. If Nikon were to release an update to this adapter, I'd suggest one serious area for improvement. Some kind of external weather sealing, around at least one of the mounts, if not both, would inspire greater confidence in me.The piece does exactly what it claims to do, not what certain photographers might imagine it could do. If you read carefully the product details and set expectations accordingly, you will not be disappointed. Nikon are a fairly honest business but they are not miracle workers.

    Most of my lenses don't need the adapter, but for those that do I am so glad to have this.

    Does the job

    Posted by DAVID JANSON on July 20, 2022

    Works well as a lens adapter, however as others have noted the bump on the bottom can create conflicts when a tripod adapter is attached. If a tripod adapter is attached to the FTZ you cannot turn the FTZ far enough to remove it from the camera without first removing the tripod adapter. Other than that it has worked fine with a number of Nikkor and other F-mount lenses. I have heard stories of slower focusing, but I have not experienced that (compared with D750 and D810)..

    The FTZ Saves Having to Buy New Lenses Until Your Budget Is Ready

    Posted by Varien on September 17, 2021

    Thank you, Nikon! The F-mount to Z-mount adapter is easy to use and works very well. The FTZ balances well and its length and weight are unnoticeable.True to its history, Nikon made sure old Nikkors are compatible with its new Z cameras. Back in 1978 I went through Nikon’s introduction of AI and was pleased then that Nikon developed a way to convert old Nikkors for use on its new cameras. And now, likewise, with the FTZ adapter I can still use my pre-AI and my G series Nikkors with my Z 7II. I am most thankful the FTZ allows me to keep using my all-time favorite portrait lens, an AI-modified Nikkor 105 mm f/2.5 K, that I bought in 1976.I have attached all of my thirteen pre-AI and G series Nikkors to my Z 7II via the FTZ. Auto focus and metering with the G series lenses is as quick and as accurate as it is with my D700. However, being manual lenses to begin with, the pre-AI lenses require manual focusing. But they do benefit from the Z 7II viewfinder’s focus indicators (front and rear focus arrows and the in-focus circle). Metering for exposure and for color temperature with pre-AI lenses is equivalent to that for contemporary lenses.The only problem encountered using my copy of the FTZ is the exceptionally tight fit of my 35/1.4G and of my 50/1.4G Nikkors. Both lenses were tight going on and almost impossible to remove, especially the 50. In fact, I was afraid the amount of torque I had to apply for decoupling was going to cause damage. Consequently, I will not attach those two lenses again. The other Nikkors attach and detach snugly and easily.

    Autofocus may be a problem

    Posted by KEITH on September 15, 2021

    Users beware! Not all FX lenses will work correctly in autofocus using this adapter. All other functions seem to work fine, but autofocus may or may not. I have not tested with a DX lens though, so can not advise on that.

    Great product works as advertised

    Posted by Ernest on March 19, 2019

    I have been shooting Canon for 30yrs. I am now 71 yrs old and it is hard to carry a lot of weight when hiking, therefore I was looking to switch to a mirrorless system. Tried Sony but diid not like the ergonomics or the controls. Tried Canon´s R system and did not like the controls.
    Tried the Nikon Z7 system and have found it to be the best of both worlds.
    I shoot wild life and landscapes so I needed a long lens for my wild life, therefore I purchased the FTZ and the new AF-S Nikkor 500mm F/5.6 PF ED VR. The FTZ works great with the 50mm lens, it also works great with the 1.4 extender installed.
