Nikon has understandably made a big deal about launching their new Z-mount alongside the announcement of their new mirrorless cameras, the Z6 and Z7. The Nikon F-mount was originally released 59 years ago and the company has made backward compatibility of the system a brand pillar.
Nikon’s new full-frame mirrorless Z lens mount is designed to be futureproof over the next 100 years and “redefine possibilities. ” How crazy are the possibilities? Get this: the Z-mount could theoretically accept lenses with apertures as large as f/0.
Nikon’s upcoming full frame mirrorless camera may not be compatible with F-mount lenses without the use of an additional adapter. A new report suggests that the company has developed a new “Z-mount” for its professional full frame mirrorless system.
