I've bought a Nikon Z6 a little while ago and wondering will there be any negatives to using a F to Z mount lens adapter?

All the reports and discussion I have read, which is a bunch, say there is no loss of performance. Just yesterday, I followed along a long discussion relating to "fine-tuning" the f-lenses to a Z camera. The poster said the numbers for his DSLR were significant but when he ran the fine tuning tests for his new Z camera, they came out to 0. One lens had an adjustment factor of 0.5 per the software he was using so with adjustments being whole increments, he had to leave it at 0. He said he was amazed at how much sharper some of his lenses were on the Z compared to his DSLR even with fine tuning. Several others chimed in and said they found the same results. Just passing along what I read.

If you mean the mount itself then no, with the adaptor,
not even a loss of light.

The immediate extremely limited range of Z lenses is
not so much of a problem given the said adaptor.

Light is free… capturing it is not!

There shouldn't be any difference.

The only negative with the adapter could be using it with third party lenses. You could run into issues there. I know Tamron had some difficulties.

Then, for a "z" user with so few lenses "z" and having
Nikkors should not be a problem!

Won't be long, there should be 3 new lenses by the end of the year.
