Re: Your favorite Nikon camera body for use with vintage manual focus lenses

Since this is a digital website, except for the film forum, I thought the question posed really meant to ask…your favorite Digital Nikon camera body for vintage lenses. Would it be a DSLR or perhaps one of the Z bodies. For me I only have a Fuji S5 Pro …which is sort of a Nikon. And like many DSLRs one can use adapted lenses on it, but there are backfocus issues and dinking with getting focus right with macro or teles is a pain. Now, someone should say something about their Z. I tried a Z5 and was unsatisfied, just personal issues with the IBIS and focus aids that others might not find bothersome.  I guess if I had the money a good used 800 series DSLR might find a place in the file cabinet, or a Z7ii or Z9 if I won a small lotto jackpot. I have a couple minty Nikkormats for film use and self defense…being solid and hefty weapons.
