About this deal

No one has any answer for why Nikon was unable to make all of their Electronic mount lenses compatible. How about concluding that you are just smarter and that we aren’t equipped to comprehend your superior truth?

We took to the streets for some portraits and shot a few macro photos for this first installment in our sample gallery. All content, design, and layout are Copyright © 1998–2024 Digital Photography Review All Rights Reserved. Is the extra optical oomph worth the upgrade over the iPhone 15 Pro’s 3x (77mm equivalent) telephoto? absolutely no communication between camera and lens so the camera, meter and EXIF data have no idea what aperture you're using, and 3. Compared to Sony/Canon only having support back to the 80's that sounds like they had amazingly good mount design strategy.Support isn't universal, but Nikon claims that around 360 F-mount lenses can be mounted, of which 90 retain full AF, AE and VR (where applicable) compatibility. Additionally, there are also three Dynamic-Area AF modes, with a range of focus area sizes, to suit capturing a broader variety of moving subject types. Some older Nikon bodies don't work with the newest f mount lenses either (af-p), same goes for Pentax but they never changed the mount. The Nikon FTZ II Mount Adapter adapts nearly all F-mount lenses to Z-mount camera bodies with no loss of image quality or speed as the original FTZ but with a refined design that removes the tripod mount and accommodates wider tripod plates for more comfort when shooting with cameras with a built-in or attached grip or wireless transmitter.

It cannot be mounted on F mount (Nikon digital SLR) or 1 mount cameras (Nikon 1 advanced cameras with interchangeable lenses) or used with 1 NIKKOR lenses.EF-S was a convenient way to get wide angle lenses closer to the sensor (smaller mirror box allows for the glass to protrude into the body more) for better image quality and some size reductions. Anything that isn’t as you would expect, we then make a note of and show this in the condition notes on the page. SLR auto focus didn't come about until the late 80s early 90s - Nikon was the first company to introduced Auto Focus with their F3AF. This mount adapter allows Nikon F mount NIKKOR lenses to be mounted on Nikon Z mount mirrorless cameras.

If you know the history of the F mount and how many add-on physical adaptations were made to it in the pre-digital age you can see why it's good to start fresh. Duologi is a trading name of Specialist Lending Ltd, which is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (register number 774712 ). Design without a tripod mount enables stable holding without interference with finger placement in vertical shooting, as well as unobstructed pairing with video and other accessories. Sony's first adapter, the LA-EA1, only had a motor for the aperture, but the LA-EA2 added one for the focus screw drive. types of NIKKOR F lens from AI type onwards, while shooting with AF/AE is available with 93 types of AF-P/AF-S/AF-I lenses.As this page is copyrighted and formally registered, it is unlawful to make copies, especially in the form of printouts for personal use. A long lens plate could be adapted to extend between the Z body and the FTZ, providing a longer base to clamp the tripod head to. FTZ: Nikon specifies 70 mm diameter (excluding significant projections x 80mm long, but I suspect the correct length (thickness) is 30.

mais51, said "evolved seamlessly", just refer to the compatibility chart I linked above for "seamless". Not on a DX body (although I'm sure someone or several people have) but it's the point about the weight and some lenses not having tripod feet built into them, thus making the FTZ gen 1 useful for some cases.the camera has no ability to set the taking aperture so there is no Program or Shutter-priority modes with these lenses.
