Other Z-Mount Adapters

Note: adapters with optics in them to reduce focal length have been moved to the next page (Speed Adapters).

A number of third-party companies make adapters for various lens mounts to the Z mount. These tend to work the same as AI lenses do on the Nikon FTZ adapter (manual focus, meters in Aperture and Manual exposure modes [requires Non-CPU data entered correctly in the camera menus], though there are now a few that support autofocus and electrical information pass-thru; I've tried to note that below):

  • 7Artisans — Leica M

  • Eletrend — Fujifilm XF
  • Fotodiox — Arri PL (PL-NIKZ-PRO), Canon FD (FD-NIKZ-PRO), Canon EF (EOS-NIKZ-PRO), Contax (CY-NIKZ-PRO), Hasselblad V (HBV-NIKZ-PRO), Leica M (LM-NIKZ-PRO), Leica M42 (M42-NIKZ-PRO), Leica R (LR-NIKZ-PRO), Minolta MD/MC (MD-NIKZ-PRO), Olympus OM (OM-NIKZ-PRO), Pentax K (PKA-NIKZ-PRO), Pentax 645 (P645-NIKZ-PRO), Sony A (SNYA-NIKZ-PRO), Pentax 6x7 tilt-shift (TLT ROKR), Also autofocus Leica M42 (LM-NKZ-PRN).
