IMG 7292

Techart has unveiled its new Canon EF to Nikon Z Autofocus Adapter. The new adapter allows 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.

Key features

  • Both AF-S, AF-C, AF-F and MF mode will work on the Nikon Z6/Z7
  • Face and Eye detection support
  • EXIF reading
  • Timelapse function supported
  • Phase-detect AF is used and therefore the AF speed is on par with using native Z mount lenses on the cameras

The Techart adapter enables both Auto Focus & 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 & Eye Detection of Z-mount cameras can also be used. Other functions like lens vibration reduction and timelapse are also supported.

In a big claim, Techart says that Phase-detect Autofocus is adopted to guarantee both AF accuracy and speed to be very close to (if not better) than native Z-mount lenses. They note that the functionality may vary when different Z-mount lenses are used.

With the new Techart adapter, owners can now make use of Canon EF-lenses with the Nikon Z system. The new Techart adapter currently supports most of the Canon, Sigma, Tamron, Tokina & Zeiss lenses with EF mount including some legendary glasses like Canon 16-35mm L, 24-70mm L, 70-200mm L, Sigma Art series, Canon Tilt/Shift glasses, Tamron zoom lenses, etc. This adapter does NOT work with lenses with no CPU contacts (MF lenses)
