FYI: Sony FE to Nikon Z DUMB adapters
3

I use a Kipon FE to Z adapter to reuse my MF lens mount to Sony NEX adapters on a Z6. These are still £110 ( in the UK ).

Just noticed that Pixco do a cheap one ( £12.50 ex Amazon UK ) so I just got one since I needed a spare and obviously can send it back without hassle.

The Pixco got just one review on Amazon.com - something about being too loose on the body.

My copy seems OK ( for the price ): good firm but not overfirm engagement to Z6 flange and a variety of XXX-NEX adapters but there is a very small amount of lateral play - I would guess under 0.2 mm. No problem for me so I will keep it. ( There is no play on my copy of the Kipon )

The Kipon looks better engineered to me.

Flange to flange spacing is 1.87 mm +- 0.02 mm on both.

The Pixco has a larger diameter knurled flange so its easier to get the adapter, alone, off the body.

Nikon Z6
