Great glass endures. That's why Nikon cameras—from the Nikon F in 1959 all the way to D850—have remained compatible with nearly all F-mount NIKKOR lenses. Why would things be any different with the Nikon Z? The Mount Adapter FTZ lets you keep shooting the lenses you know and love while also gaining the benefits of the new Z system. The legacy of compatibility continues.
On a Z camera with the Mount Adapter FTZ, compatible F-Mount NIKKOR lenses retain all of their sharpness and superb rendering power. Plus, they gain so much—smooth, fast Hybrid-AF*, silent shooting, breakthrough low-light performance, the benefits of in-camera VR image stabilization when used with Z cameras that feature in-camera VR and more.
For the first time, you can experience fast aperture NIKKOR primes like the AF-S NIKKOR 105mm f/1.4E ED or AF-S NIKKOR 24mm f/1.4G ED with up to 5 stops of 3-axis VR image stabilization. NIKKOR lenses that already have VR, like the AF-S NIKKOR 70-200mm f/2.8E FL ED VR, get the added benefit of roll axis for a total of 3-axis VR. Just add the optional Mount Adapter FTZ and you're good to go.
The Mount Adapter FTZ is the only adapter built by Nikon for Z series cameras. This meticulously engineered adapter is designed to recreate the flange distance and mount diameter of a Nikon F-mount DSLR, ensuring that autofocusing of compatible F-mount lenses will work as expected.* There is no glass inside of the adapter, ensuring no loss of image quality and the connection between the camera mount and lens is precisely parallel, critical for sharpness outside of the center of the image.
