Most Tokina lenses are compatible with the Nikon Z7 camera (with a few exceptions)

An update to my previous post about third party lens compatibility with the Nikon Z7 mirrorless camera -  today Tokina published their test results and their current lenses showed no issues in general operations with the following exceptions: Tokina Opera 50mm f/1.4 FF lens : compared with general conditions AF speed is slower. Tokina AT-X 70-200mm f/4 FX VCM-S lens : AF communication error, however, the lens will operate normally in manual focus mode. Due to FTZ adapter specifications, the following Tokina lenses will not autofocus but will work in manual focus: Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX NH Fisheye Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye See also this related video: Sigma issued a press release that all of their lenses are comparable with the Nikon Z7: Sigma confirms that their lenses work with the Nikon Z7 + FTZ adapter combo Tamron issued a notice that some of their  Di/Di II series lenses  will not work properly on the Nikon Z7: Some Tamron Di/Di II lenses will not work properly with the Nikon Z7, Tokina is still testing their lenses Tokina full press release: About compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with Nikon Z 7 camera Oct 19, 2018 Thank you for using Tokina products
