By Ian Bongso-Seldrup, August 23, 2021 @ 09:00 PM (EST)

Ever wanted to put a Sony E-mount lens on a Nikon Z-mount body? No, neither have we! But apparently, some folks do, and for those forward-thinking types, lens accessory maker Megadap has created the ETZ11—the world’s first automatic adapter for mounting Sony E-mount lenses on both full-frame and APS-C Nikon Z bodies.

According to the press release (below), the adapter supports both AF-S and AF-C autofocus, aperture control and in-body image stabilization—even with manual lenses without chips. Megadap says the ETZ11 supports a “wide variety” of first- and third-party E-mount lenses from Sony, Samyang (Rokinon), Sigma, Tamron, Voigtlander and Zeiss.

Measuring just 2mm thick, the ETZ11 is constructed from aluminum alloy and comes with a special clip-on cable for firmware updates via USB. The adapter can be purchased for $249 from Megadap’s online store.
 



PRESS RELEASE

Much Higher Compatibility

ETZ11 allows E mount lenses from Zeiss, Sigma, Tamron, Voigtlander, and Samyang (Rokinon) to be used on Nikon Z cameras like native Z-mount lenses. It greatly improves the choices of lenses for Nikon Z users to use, especially Z50 and Zf-c owners.

Functions Upgrade

Megadap has spent countless of hours to optimize the firmware and ensured a much faster focusing speed for most of the compatible lenses when over similar adapters in the market. It is also first of its kind to be compatible with manual lenses without electronic chips. Camera IBIS is supported in AF- S/AF-C/MF modes. Auto aperture control and Aperture coupling (Aligned aperture values showing on the lens’ body) are also supported (e.g. Sony GM lenses with aperture ring, Zeiss Loxia lenses, Voigtlander VE lenses etc.) Smooth real-time focus tracking is allowed with ETZ11.

Effortless Firmware Update

An USB update tool is included in the packing of ETZ11. The update can easily be done by connecting the clip-on electronic contact spots on the adapter and plugging the USB end into a computer. Simply drag the updated firmware downloaded from Megadap official website (www.megadap.net) into the pop up folder (like working with a flash drive) and the update is done.

Premium Built Quality

High Quality Plating is applied on the surface of Megadap ETZ11 Autofocus adapter. 2mm thickness made of aluminium alloy is thin but though. Ultra- protection of the circuit board has been designed to protect the circuit board from daily uses.
