NAB 2019: Nikon? FTZ Mount Adapter Keeps Classic Lenses On Your Z7

F-mount To Z-mount that is what FTZ means. More importantly, FTZ means opening up more than 90 currently available Nikkor F-Mount lenses to the Z-mount Z6 or Z7. An incredible number of older, and many cases vintage, lenses can be used on the newest modern mirrorless camera technology Nikon can make. In total, if one looks through Nikkor’s entire collection of lenses shooters have an option for 360 F-Mount Nikkor lenses. 360!  Now those are a lot of options.

“Keep shooting on the lenses you love”

Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter

My wife Angela is a loyal Nikon shooter. She has the Nikkor holy trinity; 14-24mm f/2.8, 24-70mm f/2.8, and the 80-200mm f/2.8 and a handful of prime lenses. She loves being able to use her older lenses on the Nikon Z6 we currently have on hand for video review. This is one of the points of the new Z series mirrorless systems. Use your gear you already own with your new mirrorless.

When used with the Mount Adapter FTZ, compatible F-Mount NIKKOR lenses retain all of their sharpness and image quality, and many gain the benefits of the Z Mount system.

Every compatible lens benefits from a Z series camera’s built-in VR. Fast primes. Wide-angle zooms. Space-bending fisheyes. And F-Mount NIKKOR lenses that already have VR get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR.

Mount Adapter FTZ seamlessly bridges the gap between Nikon’s F mount and the new Z Mount. Your F-Mount NIKKOR lenses will feel as if they were made for your Z series camera.
