If exif is not recorded, why get this instead of a $20 dumb adspter?

Absolutely correct. If one is only going to adapt manual, non-CPU lenses then the FTZ is a waste of money.

Personally, I won’t be buying any of these lenses for my Z. No aperture in EXIF? No buy.

I don’t remember those old lenses ever supplying EXIF information on the (film) cameras that they were originally built for either. Didn’t seem to make any difference to the images either back then or, for that matter, now.

You can get them chipped to supply lens information to the camera, I'm not sure if it gives the aperture as it is adjusted. There is a 500mm f4 "P" manual focus Nikon lens that is standard with the contact's and allows for matrix metering.
