Is this lens fit for Nikon F? If it is not suitable, is it possible to use adapter?
Asked by: Alicia
No, the Lensbaby Trio 28mm f/3.5 Lens for Nikon Z is for Nikon Z-series cameras. There is likely no adapter that will work for Z to F due to the the flange focal distance of the Z-series lenses being smaller than the F-mount. F to Z works, but not the opposite.

There's some play in the lens due to the front of the lens moving relative to the axis of the barrel. Anyone else seen this problem?
Asked by: Tom
That does happen sometimes. That is because a spring in the mount is not very tight. The lens will still work perfectly though and allow for great images. That type of movement happens with any lens of any manufacturer.
