As readers of our newsletter and Nikon fans will know, Nikon are renowned for their exceptional glass quality, as their roots began in lens production just over a hundred years ago.
We’re pleased to see that recently there has been an increase of interest in manual focus lenses, and feel that they deserve their own spot in the limelight.

With a steady rise in photographers shooting with film again, as well as photographers using manual glass on digital cameras and adapting them for cinematography, AI and AIS lenses are returning to the fore as an option for those who want a particular look and feel to their images.
In fact, the Nikon Z 7 & Z 6 with FTZ adapter will take AI, AIS and even pre-AI lenses so that one can shoot with the mirrorless system in full manual mode, the only digital camera other than the Nikon Df to accommodate Nikon’s earliest manual lenses.
