Every time I've bought one of the new Z cameras (going on 5 now), I always push for a discounted or free FTZ adapter. I have some specialty F glass that works great with the adapter and I can always pass on the FTZs to relatives or sell them outright for a decent price.
Tartisans is coming out with 3 new AF Z lenses that would cover your interested range - for the time being, they are an inexpensive but decent option.

If I am using manual only lenses, I use dirt cheap Fotasy adapters. $13 from eBay and I have them for Nikon F, Canon, Contax, and Pentax lenses.
I use the FTZ only for full Auto F mount. The Fotasy are a little less bulky and don't have that ugly FTZ tripod bump-out that gets in the way of mounting plates, etc.
