[...]. At least I wouldn't adapt those old AI/AI-S lenses on it. The FTZ is already very bulky as it is. I wouldn't want to add any AF motor or the mechanism to support to legacy aperture ring.

There's enough space in an AI/AI-S to Z mount adapter to add an AF motor there. The lack of IBIS would put me off using this body with old glass.

Unlike the Df, the Zfc is about auto focus, video capture (a feature deliberately missing on the Df). What is really missing are 2, 3 more DX lenses in the Z mount, especially a economical wide zoom such as 10-20mm DX, etc. to match the Z50 and Zfc.

Any FX retro Z body is going to have the same adapter issues if people want to adapt those old, non-AF-S F-mount lenses onto it. IMO, an FX retro body should be a DSLR, not a Z.

It is my understanding that IBIS is easier to integrate in a mirrorless body than in a DSLR.
