Kudos to Nikon for launching these two Z-models with a functional vertical grip with controls. The adapter is not a reliable solution. The Nikon MB-N11 Power Battery Pack with Vertical Grip is disproportionately large and overpriced. And maybe open its system to Sigma or Tamron?It's a bit disappointing.

Now, a better view of the Nikon Z line up tells us that, leaving aside the 35mm f1.8 S that’s only very good:- all the Z lenses are at least as good as their Sony/Canon counter parts- this is clearest for the 3 most important lenses of any serious set up, the 3 pro f2.8 zooms- there is no f1.2 lens on Sony’s roadmap and those produced by other brands for the FE mount aren’t that good (I use the Sigma Art 35mm f1.2 on my a9II and am not too impressed)- Nikon is the only brand with a full set of great f1.8 lense that are reasonably affordable and lightweight- the expensive 58mm f0.95 offers a unique set of qualities that serious shooters can leverage to differentiate their work- F mount glass on the Z camera is excellent including the 19mm T/S, 28mm f1.4 or 105mm f1.4 or 120-300mm f2.8 offer great artistic opportunities.
