Z mount: Bigger. Better.
With more light reaching the sensor, fine details and textures are captured faithfully across the entire frame, from corner to corner.
NIKKOR Z lenses transform out-of-focus areas into a smooth, beautiful blur that makes subjects stand out.
More Light Gathering
With the largest full-frame mount of any mirrorless system, Z series lenses have larger rear elements that deliver more light to the sensor.
Reduced Focus Breathing
Many NIKKOR Z lenses all but eliminate focus breathing, maintaining a consistent viewing angle while pulling focus in videos.
Faster Lens-to-Camera Communication
The wide diameter of the Z mount accommodates more communication points, enabling larger amounts of metering and autofocus data to be shared between the lens and camera.
Use DSLR lenses with no loss of image quality.
Attach the FTZ II Mount Adapter (sold separately) and use over approximately 360 Nikon F-Mount lenses with no loss of image quality and all the benefits of the Z 8’s extraordinary sensor, image processing and in-body image stabilization.
In-body stabilization means every lens has VR.
The Z 8 has 5.5 stops of 5-axis image stabilization built right into its body (6.0 stops³ when using a NIKKOR Z lens that supports Synchro VR⁴). That means even prime lenses get the benefits of VR for steadier video footage, more low-light capabilities and sharper results overall.
