No.... I simply noted that Nikon AND CANON provide pass-thru adapter support for far more lenses -- 90 for Nikon, hundreds for Canon. Only 11 unique ff lenses for Sony (and only 26 total).

Imagine how many "angry customers" were left behind with their screw-driven Nikon lenses after announcement of FTZ adapter.

Very very few.  Just as there aren’t many angry customers about the Nikon D3500 not having support for screw drive lenses.

Thats what you keep missing — since they have 90+ af-s lenses, they have been winding down support for screw drive for quite some time.

On the other hand, Sony only has 11 unique SSM/SAM FF lenses.

A Sony a-mount shooter Is far more impacted by screw drives than a Nikon shooter.
