Nikon FTZ adapter will change the focal length of the Lens ?

Take A look at the set of Five Question we have received  today,

Q1 .Maybe you can answer a question for me and other readers about the new Nikon Z6.
I read that you can use a adapter to use older Nikon lens. It looks to me that the adapter is not as close to the sensor as it should be.
Does that mean the Lens used with the adapter will change the focal length of the Lens ?

Q2. Does putting the Big FTZ adpater will add a extra crop factor ?

Q3. Hi TNC, Can I use my Nikon Mirrorless Lenses to Nikon DSLR ?

Q4. Nikon FTZ Mount adapter creates any Focal Length issues with DSLR lenses ? Kindly let me know if Nikon DSLR Lenses suffer from any crop factor when used with Nikon Z6 Mirrorless camera.

No, Nikon FTZ adapter will not change the focal length of the Fullframe DSLR Lens

The answer is very simple, You don’t have to face any crop issue while using Nikon DSLR lenses in Nikon Z6 or Z7 Mirrorless camera.

The DSLR have Mirror inside (the flip-up Mirror) for reflecting a portion of light to Viewfinder and some to the Phase AF sensor sitting inside the Main sensor, so the flange distance (distance from sensor to lens) is large in DSLR camera. Now in Mirrorless the flange distance is small due to the absence of Mirror. So the distance of Lens from main sensor is small compared to DSLR. Hence, to use the DSLR lenses in Mirrorless we have to recreate the same distance with the help of an adapter,  this doesn’t affect focal length of the lens.
That’s why you can use your Nikon FX / Fullframe DSLR Lenses to Nikon FZ Mirrorless camera with an adapter, but in any case you cannot use the Mirrorless lenses to DSLR.
Flange Distance (distance from lens to sensor)
Nikon Z Mount – 16 mm
Nikon F Mount –  46.50 mm
Nikon Z mount + FTZ adapter – 46.50mm

The Nikon FTZ Mount adaptor available at $249 – Available at B&H Store

Patent Translated Details

To provide a variable power optical system in which a focusing lens group is made more compact and lighter, an optical device and a manufacturing method for the zoom optical system.SOLUTION: A variable power optical system comprises, in order from an object side, a first lens group G1 having positive refractive power, a second lens group G2 having negative refractive power, a third lens group G3 having negative refractive power, a fourth lens group G4 having positive refractive power, a fifth lens group G5 having negative refractive power, and a sixth lens group G6 having positive refractive power, and is configured such that distances between respective lens groups change when varying power from a wide-angle end state to a telephoto end state, the third lens group G3 moves in an optical axis direction when focusing from an infinity object to a short distance object, and at least a part of the fifth lens group G5 moves so as to have a directional component orthogonal to the optical axis. The variable optical system satisfies a following expression: 0.80<f5/f3<1.30, where f3 represents a focal length of the third lens group G3, and f5 represents a focal length of the fifth lens group

Next, the camera is an optical apparatus provided with the variable magnification optical system ZL according to the present embodiment will be described with reference to FIG. 11. The camera 1 is a lens interchangeable type so-called mirrorless camera equipped with a zoom lens system ZL according to the present embodiment as an imaging lens 2. In the camera 1, light from an object (not shown) (object) is focused by the imaging lens 2, not shown OLPF (Optical low pass filter: the optical low-pass filter) through the imaging surface of the imaging unit 3 forming an object image on. Then, the image of the object is generated object image by a photoelectric conversion element provided in the imaging unit 3 is converted photoelectrically. This image, EVF provided in the camera 1: is displayed on the (Electronic view finder electronic viewfinder) 4. Thus photographer can observe an object through the EVF 4.

When the release button (not shown) is depressed by the photographer, an image is photoelectrically converted by the image pickup unit 3 are stored in a memory (not shown). In this manner, the photographer can take a picture of the object by the camera 1. In the present embodiment, an example has been described mirrorless camera, the variable magnification optical system ZL according to the present embodiment in a single-lens reflex type camera to observe the subject by the finder optical system has a quick return mirror in the camera body even when equipped with, it is possible to achieve the same effect as in the camera 1.

Thus, the optical device according to the present embodiment is provided with the variable magnification optical system ZL having the above-described configuration, suppressing the change in the size of the image during focusing (focusing), further, during zooming , and it is possible to realize an optical device well suppressing variation in aberrations upon focusing.

Incidentally, the following description may suitably be applied within limits that do not deteriorate optical performance.
