Nikon Z lens roadmap
2

Hi

Olympus shooter here. I have been considering going FF for more than a year , so Oly dying or not is not the reason for it . Going FF is not that simple if one wants /tries to do it right , one has to look at a whole system body-lenses , I even contemplated Canon 6DII for a while but eventually I decided to stick to mirrorless and that would be either Sony A73 or Nikon Z6 , I don't like the Canon R line ( too bad for the lenses ..)

While checking samples here and there on FlickR I have been strongly impressed by two " kit zooms" , the Sony 24-105 f4 and the Nikon 24-70 f4 . This would be my way to start , a good quality zoom and a prime . Both zooms I find outstanding , with no equivalent IQ wise in m4/3 land . I prefer the z6 body, for reasons of ergonomy , and generally like the Nikon color output , but 70 mm is a bit short. Sony's 105 is much better . I saw there is an adapter Sony FE to Nikon Z which is pretty thin , given the flange distance on both bodies , that could work and let me use further lenses that interest me like the Sigma 40 mm f2.8 . On the other hand I see that there is a 24-105 or even a 24-120 Z mount on the roadmap ( I'm not interested in the new 24-200 ) : if it's 24-70 S quality I would not hesitate .

So to sum up , is the adapter a good idea ? And is there any chance this 24-105/120 will materialize in the near future '

Thank you
