Double adapting is the use of two different lens adapters to achieve a desired combination. It's an ingenious solution when standalone options are not available. We have offered combo adapter options for years as a way to expand our lens-to-camera possibilities.
Despite having one of the largest lens adapter selections, we do not always make standalone adapters for a given combination. There are a lot of factors as to why this is, with with the biggest reason being the popularity of a specific lens mount.
Double adapting, at least for Fotodiox, revolves around mirrorless systems and expanding the range of lens mounts using Canon EF lens adapters.
So what does this mean for the Nikon Z system? Currently we only support 22 unique lens mounts for the Z system through standalone PRO adapters. Using our EF-NKZ-P adapter you can create 20 additional lens combinations not available in our standalone offering for Nikon Z.
The possibilities don't stop there! With the Nikon Z system, things are a bit different due to the system having one of the smallest focal flange distance of any mirrorless cameras (beaten only by the Pentax Q). The Z system’s short flange allowed us to create an adapter for Sony E and Fujifilm X mount lenses to Nikon Z! Using the SNE-NKZ adapters lets you create 24 new combinations and the FX-NKZ creates 19 new combinations.
You can even mix and match with our specialty adapters for Sony E or Fuji X that may not be available to the Z system. This includes our DLX Stretch lineup for some macro functionality, our ColorFlare adapters if you’re feeling a bit artsy, and our TLT ROKR adapters for those SLR lens mounts.
