Reader Comment: Sony Mirrorless Lenses on Nikon Z7 via Techart PRO Autofocus Adapter

John M writes:

Here’s hoping that you’ll be reviewing the TechArt PRO Autofocus Adapter for Sony E-Mount Lens to Nikon Z-Mount Camera.

When it’s available: I would be very interested in your review of the Zeiss 40/2 Batis as well as other of your favorite E lenses on the Nikon Z7.

DIGLLOYD: one of my readers has one and it seems to work well.

The main issue is that I don't own a Nikon Z7, so evaluating it has to wait until I have a Z7 again (or its successor—will Nikon be aggressive in its camera body upgrades as Sony has been?). I'm swamped right now with the Fujifilm GFX100 and not far off is the Sony A7R IV, so it’s a low priority.

With the arrival of the Sony A7R IV, the idea of adapting E-mount lenses to a now out of date camera with lower resolution does not excite me. Still, I’ll likely give it a whirl if I have a Z series camera in my hands this fall.

As much as I prefer the ergonomics/haptics of the Nikon Z7 over Sony, I am increasingly less and less interested in lens adapters—they always involve some degree of hassle, extra parts to break or fail, etc. Also, the Nikon Z7 is 45 megapixels, but the new Sony A7R IV not only has a 61MP sensor, that sensor incorporates the very best/latest sensor technology with no need for an adapter. It’s a big job just to nail down various lenses on that much more demanding higher-res sensor.

I now have a number of adapters for mounting Sony E lenses on the Nikon Z7. The TechArt TZE-01, which is NOT a dumb adapter, seems to work well with the Sony E lenses that I have, like the 65mm and 100mm APO Voigtlander lenses.

The Laowa 100mm F/2.8 2X Ultra Macro APO Lens for Sony FE requires a DUMB adapter or the Z7 will not allow the shutter to be released by remote or shutter-button.

I now have the Kipon Adapter and that works well. I have the Pixco Adapter set to arrive, but I read that some used find that the cheap adapter has gritty dust inside that shakes out and gets on the sensor, so anyone using the adapter better spend time shaking out the dust and otherwise cleaning the adapter BEFORE putting it on your Nikon Z camera.

The Laowa 100mm Lens has a VERY short focus throw, so single shots work fine, but for stacking I would want to put it on a focus rail. Otherwise, the lens (which is inexpensive) works well enough. The Sony E version, which I have, has a 13-blade diaphragm. Other mounts do not.

DIGLLOYD: sounds like the TechArt adapter is the way to go for now.
