Kenneth, you might try a look below the insert of your camera bag. Been there, done that :)

My last icon of my lost charger is somewhere in the car 8)
During summer vacation I usually prepare myself and doing this  I found the charger in one plastic bag containing car accessories in the warehouse   :P
It took me 3 months to live without the new one and 6 months to find the old

Don’t look where you think that might be , just look elsewhere!

The Chinese company Viltrox recently has released several AF lenses in native Z mount. I got the AF 23mm f/1.4 STM ED IF (their designation, not mine) for the Z fc. This is a small, quite compact modern 11 elements in 10 groups design with ED and aspherical elements. Plus of course it has the electronics to allow the lens to communicate with the camera and conduct AF. It is made for the DX format.

Price was very reasonable and the lens shipped fast as well, apparently from a facility in the Netherlands. I got it this afternoon so just a few quick shots.The workmanship and build appear to be excellent and the lens itself delivered very sharp and contrasty images.
Hi Birna where did you get the lens from?
Thank you

This is to let Nikon Z fc owners who might want a compact flash for the Z fc for family gatherings, parties, church, clubs, news letters or macro photography were the flash is used to freeze motion when a tripod can not be used. Here is the link...

I don't see any action at this topic. Maybe this is because few here are interested in flash. I think the thread may ultimately be of interest to Nikon Z fc owners or any Nikon DSLM (digital single lens mirrorless) camera that does not have a popup flash. Owners of recent DSLR(s) without a popup flash may be interested also.

Best,

Dave

Well, I've joined the club, filled the bag, and the Zeiss Planar 2/45 looks like it ws designed for the little Z fc.  It works so well and looks so at home on the fc camera body that I took the G1 body to the local hospital  charity store and donated it. It is a neat, small lens, but it sure is heavy, in relation to the fc body.
