Thank you for providing the sample images.   We have internally confirmed the fix with these images.  The fix will be in our next release (not too long from now).  Thanks for your patience and help.

@madmanchan

is this fix possibly coming this week. I’m unsure what length of time “not to Long from now” refers to in Adobe time.

Maybe related. Along with not being able to open files from my Z5 shot with my Tamron and Sigma lenses, I'm seeing a number that are misidentified by LR Classic. My Nikkor AF-S 50mm f/1.4G is being identified as a Nikon "50mm f/1.4G". My Samyang 14mm f/2.8 gets identified as a Nikon "14mm f/2.8-1.4D". Is this the same issue or something else?

I just wanted to let you know that we are aware of this issue. A bug has been filed and engineering is investigating.

Hi Rick! Do you have a probable timeline when this issue will be resolved? I was curious since in a Nikon forum people were commenting that it would take a few months (minimum 2-3 months). That would be very disruptive if that is the case. Thanks.

I wish I could give you an answer but there is no way to know until the issue is solved. However, we will post it here when we do know.

@ Pratik Goswami:  Takes time to do things.  There once was a definition of Crash Project  used in a lecture at one of the Research Labs. The speaker said that "a crash project is like having nine women become pregnant at the same time in order to have a baby in one month."

That is a pretty good analogy! I totally get that these things do take time and appreciate the effort that goes on to fix them. Spending long hours in research labs myself have definitely taught that to me :)

@Rick may I ask, when the bug is fixed, will we be able to upload right into Lightroom just as we would with any other DSLR? Currently I have to convert to tiff and the quality just doesn’t seem as good

I've updated to Camera Raw 12.4 and still the same issue in LRc 9.4 and PS 21.2.2

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled Lens support for Sigma lenses used on Nikon Z5 with FTZ adapter.

The newest LR update to support Nikon Z5 works great on native nikon lenses.  So far none of my sigma lenses used on the Nikon Z5 with the use of the FTZ adapter will import into LR.  They will not import into PS either.

Referring back to the merged topic initiated by Celina and commented by Mark: I did update my FTZ adapter (1.10) but still have the same issue with Adobe not recognizing non-native (Z mount) lenses. I hope there is an update soon to fix this.

I am having the same issue with 2 Sigma lenses and 1 Tamron lens connected to the Z5 with the FTZ adapter. Updated the FTZ's firmware and mades sure LR and PS and camera raw were up to date. The native 24-50 lens I got with it is fine, its RAW files are readable by adobe.

Spent a bunch of time getting bounced back and forth between customer service "Talk to Nikon" - "Not us, talk to Adobe"

Don’t bother chatting on tech support with adobe. After 5 hrs total and multiple agents they have said the issue is that my files are corrupted. From multiple shoots on different cards, on a brand new camera, and only happening with non Nikon lenses.

They told me the same thing.  Fortunately, I showed them that I use Photo Mechanic to Cull my images and they all load and show up perfectly there.  This issue needs to be fixed ASAP @adobe_creative_cloud_05

ANGER
At least my person admitted likely an update is needed. I will just have to accept jpeg Fine until a fix is available. 
My local camera store suggested updating the sigma firmware too... but it is likely just adobe

I went through 3 techs and one supervisor.  5 hours later, no help, and their official response to my case is that I had corrupted files.  In the future if I ever have an issue this is the best place to post.  Adobe said engineering checks this platform for issues often. I'm happy they are looking into it!  I can't wait to edit my images.

It is definitely an issue at Adobe's end rather than Nikon as the 'bad' NEF files open fine with my Windows 10 native photos application.

That strongly suggests Adobe?  Mac users have this issue too?  What about Adobe’s DNG converter?  This fail too?

Marc, Adobe has the link to this issue. They asked me to post here. They responded and said they have reviewed the issue and have discovered it’s a bug with LR and PS. They are working on it.

So, is the issue that NO lens mounted on the FTZ adapter is recognized by LR or ACR?  Or is the issue limited to 3rd party non-nikon lenses mounted on the FTZ on a Z5?  It would be easy to isolate the problem if someone could check against the latest version of Capture One, Raw Photo Processor, RawDigger.  If the files could be read by any of those other programs, it would implicate Adobe.

I sent a file to a friend who has Capture One and he couldn't open it either.

The latest version of Capture One Pro has support for the Z5 and no issues opening the raw files...I’m using it now instead of LR.

And that was using a non-CPU lens?

I tried 3rd party F mount lenses (Tamron/Sigma) with the FTZ adapter as well as manual focus M mount Leica and Voigtlander lenses with a dumb adapter. Even used a Helios 44-2 on a Z mount to M42 adapter.  No issues with any of them...C1 opens all the NEF files.  In fact, it works so well I canceled my Adobe subscription and deleted their software from my computers.

Ah hah. I downloaded a trial of Capture One and my Leitz lens raw files open just fine. I guess my friend has an older version of CO.

BTW, if you’re using any native Nikon Z mount lenses ignore the lack of specific lens profiles in C1...the lens corrections are built into the NEF file.  This will be noted as “Manufacturer profile” in the Len Correction tab and occurs seamlessly in the background.

Yup. Confirmed Capture One 20 (ver 13.1.3.13) introduced support for the Z5 AND I can edit NEF files shot with my FTZ adapter and Tamron 24-70 G2 and 70-200 G2. 

 

Pleasantly surprised with C1 - learning curve is NOT as steep as I thought it would be given my history with LR. Editing and processing files were fast - on par with LR on my laptop. No other software I tried came this close. I was all excited to purchase it until I saw their price and pricing strategy. Will probably exhaust the trial period and hope that Adobe can get their act together and put out a fix.

C1 Express for Nikon is free.

Yes, you are correct. It is only limited to 3rd party lenses. In my case at least. Other programs open the files shot with the 3rd party lens on the Z5.

Marc, yes the DNG converter also fails. (I am on Mac) I believe some of the Nikkor lenses are fine. I only have 3rd party lenses that are F mount.
