The Nikon FTZ adapter has limited functionality.
It must provide same functionality with "AI‑s" and "D" lenses as on Nikon D750.
Nikon should redesign it (FTZ-2) to add:
=> Automatic diaphragm control for "AI‑s" and "D" lenses (there is no communication between camera and lens);
=> A removable tripod mount;

=> Drop-In Filter Mount Adapter similar to Canon (https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1433719-REG/canon_mount_adapter_ef_rf_with.html)

You want 2 motors and drop in filter while removing the bulge that is the tripod mount. Where do you suggest they mount the 2 motors let alone the filter that would need to be of a diameter bigger than the F mount, or at least close to it.
