Extend the flexibility of pairing NIKKOR F mount lenses with your favourite Z series mirrorless cameras for greater versatility
MIDDLE EAST AND AFRICA – Nikon Middle East FZE. introduces the Mount Adapter FTZ II, an enhanced second-generation Z mount adapter that boosts expandability and eases operability for Z series users. Compact and sleek, the new adapter allows users to continue utilising their existing NIKKOR F mount lenses easily with a Z series camera.
“To help creators expand their creativity to the fullest potential, the Mount Adapter FTZ II is designed for effective and seamless operability for all Z series users. It allows them to continue to tap into and maximise the vast line-up of lenses, while maintaining superior image quality and performance of the lenses,” said Narendra Menon, Managing Director of Nikon Middle East FZE.
Go from frustration to satisfaction, thanks to the sleek design for minimised protrusion. Designing the Mount Adapter FTZ II without the tripod mount allows for easier vertical holding and improved grip with ample room for comfortable finger placement when shooting stunning portraits.
Furthermore, the mount adapter enables users to seamlessly shoot a wider range of scenes for both stills and videos removing the hassle of working with other accessories that complement the creative process. Changing of lenses, even on a tripod, is now less disruptive and smoother – simply switch up to another NIKKOR F mount lens without the inconvenience of having to detach or dismount.
Compatible with approximately over 360 types of NIKKOR F mount lenses, enjoy the effective functionality of the Z series’ in-camera Vibration Reduction (VR)1 with the Mount Adapter FTZ II that allows you to use your favourite F mount lens while also maintaining AE/AF2 performance and image quality. For F mount lenses equipped with VR, both the lens and in-camera VR1 function together to provide compensation in 3-axis directions (pitch, yaw and roll), while for those without VR, the in-camera VR1 functions on its own.
At just approximately 125g, the Mount Adapter FTZ II reduces the overall weight of the entire camera system so that users have the freedom to walk about and shoot a wide variety of scenes with ease. Furthermore, the adapter is designed carefully with dust- and drip-resistant performance3 equivalent to the Z 9, by adopting effective sealing on various parts on the adapter body for enhanced reliability.
1Z 50 and Z fc are not equipped with in-camera VR. The Z 9’s Synchro VR is not compatible with NIKKOR F mount lenses.
2AE shooting is possible with approx. 360 types of lenses including AI NIKKOR and those released afterwards. Among them, a total of 94 types or more of AF-P, AF-S and AF-I lenses incorporating motors support AE/AF shooting. Depending on the position and movement of the subject, which affects lens drive, there are various difficulties when focusing. Aperture control may take time and continuous shooting speed may be slower with some lenses.
3The adapter is not guaranteed to be dust- and drip-resistant in all situations or under all conditions.

NIKKOR is Nikon's brand of photographic lenses. The NIKKOR name arose from adding "r", a common practice in the naming of photographic lenses at the time the name was established, to "Nikko", the Romanized abbreviation for Nippon Kogaku K.K., the original name used when the company was established. In November 2018, Nikon announced its milestone achievement of 110 million in total production of NIKKOR lenses for Nikon interchangeable lens cameras.
