Techart unveiled the new Canon EF to Nikon Z Autofocus Adapter (TZC-01) allowing EF-mount lenses from Canon/Sigma/Tamron/Tokina to retain autofocus, aperture control, lens stabilization and other functionalities when used on Nikon Z6 and Z7 cameras.
The $249 Techart adapter enables both Auto Focus and Auto Aperture functions of EF-mount lenses to be used on Nikon Z6 and Z7. AF-S, AF-C, AF-F & MF mode are supported in still & video shooting. The face and eye detection of Z-mount cameras can also be used as well as lens vibration reduction and timelapse. Phase-detect Autofocus is adopted to guarantee both AF accuracy and speed to be very close to (if not better) native Z-mount lenses.
Unlike the system of EF-mount where lens selection is vast, Nikon Z system is a relatively new system and it does not have a very complete lens selection. The new Techart adapter currently supports most of the Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina and Zeiss lenses with EF mount including lenses like Canon 16-35mm L, 24-70mm L, 70-200mm L, Sigma Art series, Canon Tilt/Shift glasses, Tamron zoom lenses, etc.
The new Techart TZC-01 adapter comes with a complimentary lens dock for firmware upgrade. Simply connect the PC/MAC via a Micro USB cable (not included) and the firmware can be updated via the Techart App. Techart is currently working to support more lenses, the company said.
