One of the latest designed adapter for the Nikon Z mount include an additional Macro Helicoid Tube. The so called "Adjustable Macro to Infinity Lens Adapter Suit For M42 Mount to Nikon Z6 Nikon Z7 Camera". 

Ordered one for a few M42 lenses like the Carl Zeiss Jena Triotar 135/4

https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pixco-Camera-Macro-Focusing-Tube-Helicoid-Adapter-For-M42-Lens-to-Nikon-Z6-Z7/372626154903?hash=item56c23fe597:g:W0YAAOSwBA1ciK6l

I wonder if this adapter will be good to use for my Nikkor-HC 5cm f/2 rangefinder lens on Z6? The lens fits nicely inside the m42 opening and it could be fixed by wrapping the lens with some duct tape or similar and push together. I think that the contax/nikon s rangefinder adapters including a helicoid are much too expensive right now.

Quite similarly, I recently got a m52 to m42 helicoid adapter on eBay together with a thin m42 to Z ring. With this I can use a Wollensak 75mm oscilloscope raptar f/1.9 and get infinity focus on the Z6. I read about it in another thread here on nikongear.

Just a reminder how petite -- and cute -- setup the Z50 provides if coupled with say an old W-Nikkor. Here it is with the excellent W-Nikkor 3,5cm f/1.8 from 1959 (!). The combination still, after all these years, can render tack sharp images.

The venerable W-Nikkor looks mint while the note PC doesn't...

Both are well used, but the old Nikkor show less wear :) The X220 is my main correspondence box. It runs silky smooth on Linux Mint 19.3.

How is size of Z50 compared to a Nikon 1 body?
I like the size of J4/J5 but miss the viewfinder. Maybe a Z50 is the way to go or the next version of it which hopefully has IBIS.....

It is bigger, but not by much. I can only compare to the V1 and apart from the grip and the viewfinder hump, they are in the same league so to speak. However the Z50 is more like a V1 on steroids and of course has full access to all Nikkors whether F- or Z-mount. I purchased my Z50 to get another FTZ as the kit of the two was pretty economic. Now I use the camer ever so often on its own coupled to my old rangefinder lenses or other exotica.
