Autofocus performance

According to Fotodiox, the autofocus speed is quite fast on the adapter with AF-C and AF-F being able to be used reliably for both video and photography. While it isn’t going to be as fast as using native Z mount lenses or Nikon lenses using the FTZ adapter, it should still be usable as long as your expectations aren’t sky high.

Fotodiox also claims that the adapter does not degrade image quality as it doesn’t feature any optics. Canon EF lenses will provide full frame coverage The adapter has been loaded with the Canon lens library which means the adapter is able to recognize any EF or EF-S lens licensed by Canon. However, please be aware that some third-party lenses may not be recognized or may not have full functionality.
