Second part interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless

Digitalkamera.de  updated their initial interview with Nikon on the Z mirrorless cameras ( see all previous Z interviews ). You can use the AF Nikkor 14mm f/2.8D ED lens with the FTZ adapter on the Nikon Z6/Z7 (it is not included in the preliminary list of incompatible lenses) however, fisheye lenses (6mm f/5.6, 7.5mm f/5.6, 8mm f/8, 10mm f/5.6) are generally not compatible. The Nikon Z7 currently doesn’t offer menu option “negative digitization” like the D850 for using the ES-2 adapter .
