I have no experience whatsoever with the PL-mount.
I have found on Ebay a lens, which I have been looking for a while, but it is available only with the PL-mount

As I understand it, I can adapt it on a Nikon Z lens using this adapter: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1470350-REG/fotodiox_pl_nikz_pro_pro_lens_mount_adapter.html?currency=EUR&gclid=CjwKCAjw3-bzBRBhEiwAgnnLCm62H_dujqzt2fEkXG1hzzB0eANAP3Thpsq-oMc2mQ-QjhtbXAl4WBoC0P8QAvD_BwE

Using this adapter will it be possible to use the lens like any other adapted lens? Is there anything I should consider before going ahead?

By the way, for Nikon Z there are more expensive adapters like this: https://woodencamera.com/products/nikon-z-mount-to-pl-mount-adapter-pro, which costs five time more. Is there any important features missing in the Fotodiox adapter, which prevents me somehow from using the lens properly?

Thanks in advance for your comments.

Generally, Adapters are slightly greater precision, is you pay more. Better centering and, precise depth or better anti relection coating.

If you can't find reviews you are pioneering.
