Designed for both F mount lenses with the mount adapter FTZ and Z mount lenses.

The Focus/Zoom dial has two gears, one for F-mount lenses with the mount adapter FTZ and the other for Z mount lenses. The MDX-Z7 has been designed to take into consideration various Z mount lenses which will soon be available.


The camera’s upper control panel can be seen.
