Z7 Bayonet Mount

Just wanted to restate that Sony using the same thread size of 72MM on the Z7 as the Z1 but having a different bayonet mount is total BUSH

Yeah....I love how they'll tell you, and you can see when purchasing online, that lenses suited for the Z1U will fit the Z7U.....not the case. And, of course, they change things just enough to force purchasing yet more equipment. Some of the lenses are literally like 1/16th of an inch off.....ridiculous.

Need the WA guys - any solutions from Schneider yet? I'll even settle for a screw on that works.

As of this moment, you can buy any WA Lens that has a 72mm mount and it will work with the Z7U. Oh, you will also need some duck tape to make sure it doesn't fall off!

I can understand the whole new camera, new accessories concept, just make sure its all ready for us when the camera comes out :(

Sony has yet again challenged us all. We are working hard on a solution but, as usual, it will require all new glass and mechanical design. I do not anticipate our usual line up of lenses for some time.

HOWEVER :) We do have this solution which will give you 30% wider performance and thread into the 72mm filter threads. You need the below linked item plus the adapter ring which is listed below but not on our website:

.7x wide angle adapter:

72mm Adapter Ring: 0FA-7x72-00 = $160.00
