Nikon FTZ II Overview

Featuring a streamlined design with minimal projections, the Nikon FTZ II Mount Adapter offers the same functionality as the original FTZ but with a sleeker design to suit its use on cameras featuring a battery grip. This adapter removes the tripod mount and has a reduced overall size for more comfort when shooting with cameras with a built-in or attached grip or wireless transmitter.

As an adapter, the FTZ II enables the use of nearly any F-mount lens on Z-mount mirrorless camera bodies. While compatible with approximately 360 distinct F-mount lenses, this adapter is especially ideal for use with over 90 AF-S and AF-P type D, E, and G-type lenses, where it fully maintains autofocus and auto-exposure capabilities for seamless use of the SLR lenses on the mirrorless body. The adapter is built from magnesium alloy and is weather-sealed.

Nikon FTZ II Reviews

Works great!

Item was received quickly and works as advertised. My images are just as sharp as they were when the lenses were on my old DSLR. Other than adding a little extra weight, I'm very happy with this purchase.

great with the Z9

This FTZ II works much better with the Z9 than the FTZ. Without the tripod coller you can move your fingers more freely around the camera. I don't see any change in performance as compaed to the FTZ. That being said I'm sure it will be fine on my Z7 too.

I tried this out with my new Z9 and Nikon's F-mount 600mm. Worked like a charm.

Same as the FTZ adapter

I bought this adapter because one of my lenses (Nikkor 80-200 mm 2.8 AF) was not working in autofocus with my Z7 II body. It's an older lens and I already had the FTZ. Both adapters work well with newer lenses and allow you to use them pretty seamlessly (I have a 17-55 and 200-500 Nikkor lenses). I use a 2x teleconverter on my 200-500 mm lens, and the adapters work well mated to the 2x TC and the Z-body. Neither adapter works on my older lenses, rendering them manual focus only. That's not so bad (but not good), but with outdoor action shooting, sometimes I can't focus fast enough and I lose the shot. I was guided in store that perhaps the FTZ II would fix this problem, but it turns out it won't because there isn't a AF motor on some older AF lenses, and the Z-body can't communicate with the lens. I may not have bought the FTZ II if I knew this, but I'll keep it because I may have a second Z-body in the future. Even if the AF does not work. Beats buying new Z-Nikkor lenses for sure.

clipped corners. Really?

Obviously, being able to use all your F mount glass is a win, and the FTZ is light weight, and although adapters are a pain, at least this one is very light and supposed to be perfect optically and electronically. But I was really surprised to find small negative vignetting with a wide-angle F mount using what I thought would be a flawless adapter. This came up for me using a Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VR, F-mount, version 1, which is a very nice lens on my other Nikon bodies (D850, D750). Example attached. The neg vignetting showed up first for me with this lens at 15mm, the FTZ II, and the Z-ii, no other filters, in the attached example of Lake Tahoe. So to get real keepers, one may still need to fix in PS once entering the super wide focal lengths -- boo.

What can you say? If you still have Nikkor F mount lenses, you will need this. Zero issues. Basically an electronic adapter/step up ring. Just get one. They work great.

Works Well, needs full F line compatibility

I own several F-mount autofocus and manual focus lenses made from the 1950s up to current. Only comment is this will not work if you have auto-focus Nikon lenses requiring the focus motor in the camera body. For the price, there should be an autofocus motor in the FTZ adaptor IMO. Otherwise, flawless integration with no optical loss with all later lenses with built-in autofocus.

Asked by: Ramon
No, this is an adapter that makes up for the difference in flange focal distance between an F-mount SLR and a Z-mount mirrorless camera. It will retain the same focusing range (minimum focus to infinity) of the attached lens as if it were being used on an SLR.

As far as we are aware, it cannot. Your only option would be to consider the original FTZ adapter.

It supports AF on AF-S Type D lenses. For a lens that is not AF-S it would be manual focus. However, it still supports all exposure modes on the Type D lenses.

Asked by: WERNERSAM
The Nikon FTZ II Mount Adapter works with third party lenses but Nikon optimizes it for Nikon brand. AF-S Type G, E, and D; AF-P Type G and E; AF-I Type D: Full support of autofocus, MF (with electronic rangefinder support), full auto-exposure modes, and exposure metering AF Type G and D: Manual focus only (with electronic rangefinder support), full auto-exposure modes, and exposure metering. So, not all third party model lenses will work or work as well as the listed Nikon ones.
