Nikon Z Mount Lenses

In 2018 Nikon introduced a new full-frame line of mirrorless cameras, which use a new mount they call Z. All Z lenses are labeled Z-Nikkor and S-Line.

The Z mount is a 16mm flange distance (mount to sensor) and 55 in inner diameter.

Nikon's video explaining benefits of the Z mount (Note that one of their claims in this video is false—that only the Z-mount allows f/0.95; that should be f/0.55 to be accurate.)
