Nikon Lens Mount Adapter FTZ

For the Nikon Z-system there is an adapter that gives the user the possibility to use other Nikon lenses than the Nikon Z-range. The adapter is called Nikon Lens Mount Adapter FTZ and is manufactured by Nikon themselves. 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 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.

Build quality

Crafted from rugged Magnesium Alloy and weather-sealed against dust and moisture, the Mount Adapter FTZ preserves the durability of your camera body and lens. An integrated tripod mount keeps the stress of long lenses off the camera body.


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; such as smooth and 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.

Old lenses can get VR

On a Z camera that features in-camera VR, every lens has VR. 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.
