How well does the Nikon Z work with adapted lenses?

When we polled our readers to find the things it was most important for Nikon to get right in its full frame mirrorless camera, full compatibility and performance with its F-mount lenses came out top.

This is no surprise: Nikon has sold over 100 million F-mount lenses, which has resulted in a large, loyal and, to a degree, locked-in user base. For Nikon to convert any significant proportion of those users into 'Z' mount shooters, they need not just to be able to mount their existing lenses, but to have them work well with the new system.

Based on our experiences so far, we don't think they'll be disappointed - and this is the first time that photographers using F-mount lenses will have autofocus coverage across almost the entire frame.
