These Nikon Z FF camera bodies are hot, having apparently actually been designed for FF sensors (imagine that!)

I'm ready to hop aboard except cannot locate needed adapters for my MF lenses. m42 adapters are available but they cost a fortune. Worth having, though.

I'm in particular searching for a way to adapt my Konica Hexanon glass to Nikon Z. So far: no luck.

The suitability of Nikon Z for FF manifests itself, BTW, when you check out the larger diameter of the Nikon Z mount as contrasted with, for example, Sony. Sony's much smaller mount diameter was designed originally for APS-C sensors. They sort of shoehorned in the FF sensor. Nikon started with a clean sheet of paper and got it right.

The Z-mount Nikons are still pretty new. Give the people who make the adapters a little time to design and produce their Z-mount adapters. I'm sure that, in a few more months, they'll be plentiful on eBay and other sources.
