The light color text on light gray and pale yellow background are very hard to read on the FTZ compatibility chart.

Can you change those to black text or use a different color background?

Thank you.

I personally have had issues with my AF-S 300/f.28 II (non-VR). It is a "D" type AF-S lens and should be 100% compatible. However, when mounted to either my Z 9 or Z 5 it gives the "fEE" error, even though the aperture ring is locked at the smallest aperture. (Ain't my first rodeo, been dealing with "fEE" since my N70 days.)

I've encountered one other person who reports the same error, and no one who has successfully used such a lens. Admittedly, these are older lenses - but this should not be happening. Anyone else?

The FTZ II adapter shorted out the AF module in my 600mm f/4E lens which Nikon charged me $617 to replace.

Sad news Bruce
I was thinking of pulling the trigger on a 600 F4 E at the end of this year, A boat sale will cover it but your experience would not be common, surely?

If it's a brand-new lens, schmaybe...but the F lenses are on their way out and the Z lenses seem to be superior in most respects. I'm sticking with Z glass going forward. Went with the 400/f4.5 to replace my 300/f2.8. Not the same but it has its own advantages.

I've use the TC 1.7 on the FTZII, with both the 70-200 2.8 FL, and the 200-500 5.6 on my Z9. Results were actually not too bad, AF worked in Daylight, and the Sharpness, while not as good as without it was still better than I expected.
