Four clips

NPhoto - - FEATURE 101 THINGS YOU NEED TO KNOW -

Un­like the F-mount that holds lenses in place by three clips, the Z-mount makes use of four. Nikon states that if the Z-mount were to also use three clips, they would need to be longer and thicker be­cause of the dif­fer­ence in in­ner di­am­e­ter size. By us­ing four short clips, the strength of the mount is im­proved, and these al­low for a shorter an­gle of ro­ta­tion when re­mov­ing and at­tach­ing lenses.
