Hands-on with Nikon's new Z-mount lenses and FTZ adapter

Nikon's new Z-mount marks a major departure for the company, which (barring the short-lived 1-Series) for almost 60 years has relied on the 1950s-era F-mount for its interchangeable lens cameras. The Z-mount is significantly wider than the older F standard, with a much shorter flange-back distance. As such, it provides Nikon's optical engineers with greatly increased flexibility when it comes to lens design.

The new Z7 and Z6 are launching with three new lenses - the Nikkor Z 24-70 F4 S, Nikkor Z 50mm F1.8 S, and Nikkor Z 35mm F1.8 S, alongside an FTZ adapter for Nikon's legacy F-mount lenses and a fourth native prime - the Nikkor 58mm F0.95 Noct - in development. Let's take a closer look.
