(NO - rear element too large, interferes with rangefinder mechanism)
But since the Nikon Z series of cameras does not use a rangefinder mechanism like an M body does, can one safely assume that even a lens that is listed as not working in the above mentioned table, when placed in an Amedeo adapter, linked to a Leica M-Nikon Z adapter, would function properly on the Nikon Z body?
Or does anyone know of an available adapter (seen many talked about online, but none available for purchase) that would allow me to mount my Nikon S mount rangefinder lenses directly to a Nikon Z body?
You can try using a Nikon Z to Leica M adapter combined with Amadeo's various Nikon/Contax external/internal bayonet mounts to Leica M adapter to suit your various Nikon S lens mounts.
