Here are the recommended lenses for the Nikon Z7 / Z7 II. Photographylife tested several Nikkor Z lenses and made a quick list from their recommendations.
The Z7 / Z7 II falls for Nikon’s range of high-quality full-frame mirrorless cameras. Both cameras are well suited for a wide variety of stills and video. Plus Nikon has finally put in-camera image stabilization on its cameras so you get the IBIS up to 5 stops.
Using the right lenses with the Nikon Z7 / Z7 II, it can do great work for any type of photography. This top model mirrorless camera has a 46-megapixel CMOS sensor and quality 4K video using the full width of the sensor.
However, image quality depends more on the lens than on the camera! Assuming you already own the Nikon full frame mirrorless, take a look at the recommended lenses for the Nikon Z7 / Z7 II below.

The Nikon Z7 / Z7 II features the Z lens mount, which support Nikon’s line of Z-mount lenses. The Z mount itself makes much of this possible with a 17% larger inner diameter than the F mount, enabling the use of more advanced optics and lens designs, including ultra-fast f/0.95 options. Additionally, this mount design also lends full compatibility to existing Nikon F-mount lenses via an optional FTZ Mount Adapter. So, if you have some Nikon F-mount lenses, you can just get the Nikon FTZ Mount Adapter to make full use of your Nikon F-mount lenses.
