I understand it could be complex and expensive. But Nikon (in the past) prides itself on its backwards compatibility of its legacy lenses.

True - but the opposite economic for Nikon decision is adding VR and taking away less accurate than in lens motor AF and distinctly less accurate S lens AF is a fair trade off.

Nikon via the FTZ makes pre AI lenses usable - unlike on most DSLRs.

one would think they could make such an adapter at a somewhat reasonable cost.

If you want usability with pre AI lenses (as with the FTZ) - maybe £500.

In lots of ways good photography is much more about how equipment is used rather than anything else.
