The interesting thing is Nikon Z. They seem to have had a real change of corporate heart in moving from F's longish and narrow mount to the very short and wide Z, and thus arguably making themselves the easiest mount to adapt to (or for 3rd-party lenses to target).

Among other things they possibly were in a greater bind to make their lenses adaptable as they were probably under greater pressure to win over users from other mount systems.

Nikon is a smaller company than many people realize -- much smaller than Canon or Sony. I wouldn't be surprised if they really want 3rd-party lenses to fill-out their line because that can happen faster than they can make a full line of new lenses.
