Steve Huff shares a video of the TECHART Leica M Lens AF adapter for Sony Alpha Series cameras; including, the A7R Iand II. That means you can use Leica M lenses on cameras and the TECHART joins a long list of adaptors. I use a Fotodiox for my Nikon lenses and Sigma just announced their Canon adaptor. The newer adaptors include AF functions. On his blog, Steve added
I tested the adapter with the 40 2.4 Summarit which was converted from a Minilux to an M housing and mount. I also tested the adapter with a 50 Jupiter 3+ and 50 Summilux and it nails the focus every time. In the video below I show off the adapter and take some shots to show you how fast it will AF outdoors.
The TECHART is available for preorders now direct and costs $349.00.
My daily shooter is Sony a9 II with a vertical grip and various Sony lenses attached like the FE 20mm F1.8. Find more gear recommendations in our shop. As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
