Photographyblog posted their Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S Review:
This lens is by no means a cheap optic. Indeed, the Nikon Z 14-30mm f/4 S is the most expensive Nikkor Z lens to date. However, for your money, you get something small, compact, flexible and well-suited to a number of different subjects. If you’re in any way interested in wide-angle photography, whether that be landscapes, architecture or anything else, it’s well worth the investment and comes highly recommended.
This is an excerpt from a Sima Q&A posted by Imaging Resource:
William Brawley: I have another question: Have there been any plans to make lenses in Canon RF or the Nikon Z-mount?
Kazuto Yamaki: We are still checking their systems, and it’s a bit too early to make comment. But right now, we’re checking the compatibility between our lenses and their mount adapter. We already know that it works almost perfectly, but in some specific settings and [for some] operations, our lens does not work perfectly [with their adapter yet], like continuous burst mode…
Dave Etchells: …and some particular focus settings, or whatever.
Kazuto Yamaki: Yeah, yeah. So our software engineer is now checking all the details, and if he finds some minor issues, we’ll solve it.
Dave Etchells: Yeah, you solve it and you do a firmware update on the lens to fix that.
Kazuto Yamaki: Right. But at the same time, we are looking at their system.
In a recently released Dpreview interview Tamron said this confirmed they are working on makin Z-mount autofocus lenses:
Yes, we’re also looking at that area. We have to do a lot of research and development into the reverse engineering, because they don’t disclose the details of their systems, so it’s a really hard job for us.
