About compatibility of Tokina interchangeable lenses with Nikon Z 7 camera

Oct 19, 2018

Thank you for using Tokina products.

We have thoroughly tested all current Tokina interchangeable lenses (Nikon F mount) with the Nikon Z 7 mirrorless camera using the Nikon mount adapter FTZ.

The results confirm that current Tokina lens models showed no issues in general operations with the following exceptions:

  • Tokina opera 50mm F1.4 FF
    Issue: Compared with general conditions AF speed is slower.
  • Tokina AT-X 70-200mm F4 FX VCM-S
    Issue: AF communication error. However, the lens will operate normally in manual focus mode.

Please, note that due to mount adapter FTZ specifications, the following Tokina lenses do not AF but will operate in manual focus mode:

  • Tokina AT-X M100 AF PRO D
  • Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX NH Fisheye
  • Tokina AT-X 107 AF DX Fisheye
