I bought the 10-20mm to use with FTZ on my Z50. It functions great. It's image quality is fine, not quite as good as the 16-50mm & def not as good as the 50-250mm. Due to the size of the FTZ on the Z50 & the shape of the 10-20mm, I think the balance is a little strange. I only have one Peak Design plate as well & there's just a lot of awkwardness having the Z50 with a plate on it and trying to work with attachments like the FTZ.

It's still a part of my kit, but when the Z DX version comes out (please Nikon) i'll drop it in a heartbeat. Especially if the native version is smaller, with FTZ the 10-20mm is about the same size as the 50-250mm which takes up most of my camera bag on backpacking ventures.

Your situation sounds like mine.  I missed a 10-20 on another site I belong to a few weeks ago that was sold for like $150.  Wish I had nabbed that.  My reluctance I think is spending $300 for a new one, and probably selling it for half that or less if and when Nikon has one in the Z mount.  Now I do kind of like my 50 1..8G with the FTZ adaptor so I think I would be OK using the adaptor with it.
