I was trying to find a logical explanation for the use of the letter “Z” as the mount name.

Looks like the letter “Z” is “N” rotated 90° clockwise.

Z is the last letter of the alphabet, and it could be seen as the last mount, as it has the shortest flange to sensor distance.

Alternatively it’s their way to get the English speaking world fighting with itself. Zee. Zed. Zee. Zed. Neeekon. Nikon. Nighkon. Neeekon Zee. Nikon Zed. Nighkon Zee.

I'm very happy with my Nick-on Zed system
