TECHART PRO adapter is the world’s first autofocus adapter for your manual focus camera lenses. It is able to turn your manual Leica M lens into an autofocus lens and use it under the Sony A7 cameras. Not only does it immediately give lives to all the manual Leica M lenses, it also changes the experience we had with these lenses. You can now use your favourite Leica lenses for taking snap shots, motion pictures or candid photos.




Breakdown of the Techart PRO

Techart PRO adapter is basically a lens adapter with a motor and a printed circuit board, allowing the camera to measure the focus and communicate with the motor. And the motor will move the lens closer or further away from the camera sensor to reach the focal point. The principle is similar to the Contax AX camera that the flange distance is adjusted to reach the focus. The maximum z-shift is 4.5mm which is sufficient to cover the focusing distance for most of the lenses. And the optical performance will NOT be affected for unit focusing lenses.

Techart PRO adapter has to be fast, precise and stable. We have carefully selected a motor which can drive the lens as fast as a native AF lens and stop instantly when the camera instruct it to stop. The focusing takes less than a second and the picture we had is really sharp with precise focus.





Techart PRO adapter does not only support AF-S, but more importantly, it supports the AF-C, the continous autofocusing mode. This is extremely useful for shooting moving objects like sports players, children or animals. In the past, you may not be able to keep these photos sharp with your favourite Leica M lenses, but now you can certainly do it with the Techart PRO adapter.





Techart PRO can improve the close focusing ability of your lens. It serves the same function as the helicoid or close-focus adapter in the market where the minimal focus distance of the lens will be shorten. This overcomes a limitation of most Leica M lenses which does not allow to shoot really close. You can start taking macro-like photos with Techart PRO.




Techart PRO adapter is also highly compatible. It can accept lenses with Leica M bayonet mount and connect them with Sony A7II and Sony A7RII. You may also further adapt other lens mounts with longer flange distance like Leica R or C/Y mount to Techart PRO adapter so that these lenses can also be vitalized. This opens up a tremendous amount of lenses options to be used with Techart PRO for auto focusing.




Leica M lenses are light, compact and perfect. To pair up with them, Techart PRO is super light and weighs only 133g. It is compact but it does not mean weak. The motor is so powerful that it can drive a lens system as heavy as 700g.




Techart PRO allows you to save 10 sets of lens data, including focal lengths and aperture values, via our complementary mobile app. The camera body will be able to make corresponding adjustments.

Frequently Asked Questions


Products Information

Q: Where should I set the focusing ring when using the Techart PRO for autofocusing?

A: Normally you should park the focusing ring at INFINITY focus and use the Techart PRO for focusing.


Q: Is the 4.5mm extesion enough for my lens to autofocus for the whole focusing distance?

A: According to our testing, Techart PRO can cover the whole focusing range for lenses with 50mm focal length or below. You can simply park the focusing ring at infinty and press shutter for autofocus. For lenses with longer focal length (>50mm), users may need to coarse adjust the focusing ring to the focus point and use Techart PRO for fine focus adjustment.

    Focal Length         Focusing Range    
15mm 6.5 cm – INF
21mm 12 cm – INF
24mm 15 cm – INF
28mm 20 cm – INF
35mm 31 cm – INF
50mm 60 cm – INF
90mm 1.8m – INF
135mm 4.2m – INF


Q: How does the focusing work and what is the difference versus focusing via the turning the focusing ring?

A: The focusing is done by adjusting the distance between the lens and focal plane (sensor). There is no difference in terms of image quality for unit focusing lenses.

Q: Is Techart PRO compatible with all Leica M lenses?

A: Techart PRO is compatible with Leica M lenses weigh under 700g.


Q: Can I control the aperture of the lens?

A: You will need to adjust the aperture on the aperture ring of the lens. However, you can record the aperture value to EXIF by setting through our mobile app.


Q: Can I further adapt lenses mounts with longer flange distance to Techart PRO for autofocusing?

A: Yes or No. You may adapt lenses mounts with longer flange distance to Techart PRO for autofocusing. Currently we have tested several lenses with Leica R mount or Contax/Yashica mount or Minolta mount and they work with Techart PRO perfectly. However the whole system has to be ligher than 700g for best performance. For lenses with larger thread, further adaptation may lead to a ‘double-aperture’  OR ‘Vignetting’ which implies a potential impact on optical quality. Please consider before purchase.


Q: Can I use the Techart PRO for video shooting?

A: We do NOT suggest using Techart PRO for shooting videos and only MF is available for video shooting.



Q: Can I use Techart PRO with other E mount cameras other than Sony A7II & Sony A7R II?

A: We have optimized the Techart PRO to use with Sony A7II and Sony A7R II only (A6300 TBC). You will get the best performance with these two cameras as they support the 3rd party PDAF. We do NOT recommend to use with CDAF-only E-mount cameras (i.e. Sony A7, Sony A7R, Sony A7S, Sony A7S2, Sony A6000, Sony NEX, etc)


Q: Will the image quality change when focusing with Techart PRO compared to MF adapter?

A: For unit focusing lens, the image quality will be the same as turning the focusing ring to focus on Sony A7 series cameras. For floating elements design, image quality may be changed. (FYI, Most of the Leica M lenses are unit focusing).


Q: How to shoot Macro photos with the Techart PRO adapter?

A: You should park the focusing ring of your lens to the closest focusing distance and use Techart PRO for autofocusing. You will then find that you can shoot much closer than you normally can shoot.


Q: How much weight can Techart PRO bear?

A: It can support lenses as heavy as 700g. However, we suggest users to slightly support for heavy lens (>300g) in order to enjoy the best focusing performance.


Order Fulfillment

Q: When will I get the Techart PRO when ordered?

A: We will start shipping the pre-orders from late March 2016 onwards. For US / EU orders, it normally takes less than 7 days to arrive. For other orders, it normally takes around 10-14 days to arrive.


Q: Do I still need to charge VAT for my orders?

For Europe orders, we will ship from our UK warehouse and so no extra fee will be charged.

For orders from other regions, we will ship from our Hong Kong warehouse. We will declare the item as GIFT and as low value to avoid tax imposed


Q: Which courier will you use for shipping?

    • We are now planning to release some other conversions but not in a near timeframe. However, you can further adapt your SR/MC/MD lens to out Techart PRO without a problem. We have several testing shots are made with MD lens.

    • It works well with the Leica Noctilux-M 50/0.95 . But the focusing speed will not be as fast as some smaller lens due to its weight.

  1. Can the Techart adapter works with Sony E mount camera with APS-C sensor like the alpha 6300?
    I understand that will be a crop factor according to the sensor’s size, but I want to know if there is a restriction in the compatibility. Thank you and congratulations.

  2. Will this work with the full frame Voigtlander 10 mm / F 5,6 Hyper Wide Heliar aspherical thats coming out this spring? They are making a Sony E mount version, but since its manual focus, could i get the Leica M version and use the Techart pro without any vignetting? Thanks!

    • Hi Denis, Sorry that CDAF does not work really well with our adapter and so we do NOT recommend to use Techart PRO with A7s.

      • Got it, thanks! What a pity, A7s pictures have something unique due to that large pixels, a very clean and smooth image. It works great with leica lense.

    • Hi Sir,
      Yes we have such option. Go to the pre-order page and you can select the Leica R – Leica M adapter as an accessory when you are buying the Techart PRO.

  3. Good luck with your product, wonderful innovation!
    Would be great if you can develop also an A to E mount adapter, that would support all the A-mount screw drive AF lenses.
    There is no such adapter available!
    The SONY LA-EA3 doesn’t have a motor to AF those lenses, and the LA-EA4 does have it, but includes the translucent-mirror that gets in the way, not allowing use the native camera PDAF AF that now both A7RII and a6300 allow.
    Such an adapter should have a huge market

    Thanks and good luck!

    • +1
      I agree that many people will need such a kind of adapter, we need to remove the mirror and modify the adapter to control the lens using native AF from the body, which can be done by reverse engineering.

  4. Just how bad would the AF be on A7? Is it it’ll focus much slower/less accurate or it simply wouldn’t focus at all? Also, any chance there’ll be updates to address this? Thanks!

    • Hi Garake,

      We are not really contended with the performance in A7. The CDAF in A7 does not allow a very good performance at all. We hope Sony will release firmware to open the 3rd party PDAF in A7 system.

    • We may consider this in the future but at this moment you may further adapt the OM lens to a L/M adapter and use it with the Techart PRO.

  5. Guys so let me understand it correctly. You also sell additional adapters for other mounts. Does it mean that if I buy this adapter, plus Nikon G to “M” additional adapter on your pre-order page, I can also use my Nikon AF-S G lenses on my Sony A7RII with autofocus, in addition to any M mount lenses I might have? I have a full collection of Nikon lenses that I might want to adapt. I understand you also market a separate adapter just for Nikon but it would convenient to own just one main adapter and attachments for various mounts?

    • Yes Dmitry, you are correct. However, we are NOT marketing a separate adapter just for Nikon. Is there any materials in our website which confuses you??

      • Do you have a list of Nikon lenses you have tested the adapter with by any chance? do you think it can AF 24-120/4 Nikon lens (weight is about 700 grams give or take). Thank you. I apologize re: separate adapter, I confused Techart with a different company. Thank you

  6. Why did you said that your adapter is not recommended for A7 ?
    A7 (first version) use both contrast focus AND PHASE collimators. And focus pretty fast with sony AF lenses. You will loose most of the market, as it is the most selling full frame device with Sony E mount.

    • Hi Sir, since Sony does not open 3rd party lens PDAF support for A7 and so the focusing is not good with A7. We do not recommend to use this adapter with A7.

  7. Buenas tardes amigos.
    Tengo desde hace muy poco una cámara Sony A7 II, que la compré para usar las lentes Leica que poseo desde hace tiempo.
    Son éstas:
    Tele-Elmarit 90mm. f/2.8 año 1964.(crom)
    Tele-Elmarit 135mm. f/2.8 año 1965.
    Summicrom 50mm. f/2.0 año 2006.
    Mi pregunta es si funcionarán bien con el nuevo adaptador Techart PRO

    Un saludo y gracias

    • It should work but be reminded that for some longer focal length lenses, you will need to firstly coarse adjust the focusing and use Techart PRO for fine focusing adjustment

  8. Admin wat about canon n nikon users…. is there any upcoming adapter which can be used with nikon or sony DSLR’s…..desperatly waiting for one…

    • You can use Canon/Nikon lenses + adapter to use with the Techart PRO. You may need to be aware of the weight and possible vignetting.

  9. I just pre-ordered!

    Would love to have a second adaptor that would work with my Leica SL. Now that is something that would be so powerful…

    I hope it’s realizeable>


  10. When using the adapter, do you have to set the manual lens focus ring to near or far?
    Does it affect infinity focus?

    • You should set the focus ring at infinity focus and use the Techart PRO for focusing.
      For close up shots, you can set the focus ring at closest and use the Techart PRO for focusing. It will not affect infinity focus.

      For longer focal length lens, you will need to coarse adjust the focus ring and use Techart PRO for fine focusing.

  11. DO you think that in the future this adapter could work with the Sony A7SII ? I am unclear, if Sony tweaks the software then could your adapter work? Why do you say it won’t worK? Leica glass works really well with my A7SII, It would be fantastic to have autofocus with this lens camera combination.

  12. I am from Taiwan. Last time I ordered a lens from HongKong and the store sent to me via HK Post Registered Air Mail, it took 35 days, unbelievable! Asked Post Office and they did not think it is a problem. Please consider use a real courier for faster and reliable delivery. ShunFeng could be a good one, so are the other international couriers. Please do not ship via Postal Service. Thanks for your consideration.

  13. I have the Sony alpha A7R2 with the Leica Summilux 1.4 lens. When set at F16 is the autofocusing much slower than at F 4. How fast is the autofocusing compared to my normal Carl Zeiss lens on the camera?

  14. When possible, please consider a Nikon F version also with a lever that activates to stop down the aperture during the exposure. Thanks!

  15. Please consider putting Arca Swiss grooves on the bottom of the adapter so a tripod clamp can directly grab the adapter’s foot.

  16. Does the weight of the lens matter is if it is supported on a tripod and the (Sony) camera is moved by the Techart Pro? Is the camera weight manageable?

    • We have not tested it yet as moving the camera will exert force on a different point of the adapter. I will suggest handheld support the camera as well.

  17. Will the adapter work with the MC Rokkor 58mm f1.2 and the 3M-5CA 500mm F8 mirror lens both are heavy but under 700g

  18. What part does Bluetooth play in the operation of this unit? Is Bluetooth only for wireless control or is Bluetooth required to focus the camera. In other words, can this focus the camera without the presence of an android or iPhone devise through the contacts of the camera?

    • The bluetooth is used for firmware upgrade and for sending lens data to the adapter. It can still focus without the presence of the smartphone.

  19. This looks great. The bigger market is Nikon. You should be making a Nikon AF adapter. AF Canon lenses work on Sony but Nikon are MF only. I think a lot of Nikon users would move to Sony if this adapter was available to them 😉

  20. Thank-you for your previous answer. I have two other questions.
    1- Is a way, with your adapter, to set a name of the lenses in the exifs ?
    2- Is your adapter equiped with a button to a direct access to the magnifier (X7), feature that Sony refuse to give-us, despite a lot of requests in their forums ?

  21. And an other one (sorry, but I use a A7, anf feel frustrated by the Sony policy). Did the focus confirm in the view finder works if we use manual focus with your adapter ?
    Oh, by the way, congratulations 😉

  22. I’ like to use it for Mitakon speedmaster 35mm f0.95ver II (sony e), Samyang 12mm and 135mm (sony e). Will you sell adapter sony e/sony e? (it should be easy for make having leica m/sony e)

  23. Will the adapter know what lens is attached at a given time or do you have to change lens settings via the mobile app? so if I swap my 58mm for the 500mm will it know automatically or will I have to go into an app and change that can this not be done within the camera?

    • You could save the lens data in your mobile app in advance. Each set of data corresponds to an aperture value. You will have to release the shutter under that corresponding aperture value and the adapter & camera will know about what focal length it is.

  24. Could you post a video on how this is done please? It’d be good to visualise this so we know how to use the adapter when it arrives 🙂

  25. Did-you mean “Does not work at all” ? Not even make believe to the A7 body that he has an autofocus lens attached ?
    No autofocus, even slow, not even Af confirm ?

  26. 1. Does your adapter park in a position so that I can use the distance scale on the lens for scale focussing in other words can the adapter park in the infinity position of the lens.

    2. Does the adapter sit flush with the bottom of the camera?


  27. I want to use Minolta 58 1.4
    Can I use MD–>Leica M–>Techart PRO AF–>A7 m2 ?
    Im not sure.Is it good Over a period of 50?

  28. Hi, I´d like to ask if there will be preffered shipping from UK for EU countries (you wrote “SHIP FROM WAREHOUSES in HK / UK / USA”) I´am from Czech Republic and shipping from HK or USA would be more expensive for me due to custom fees, shipped from UK it´s free from fees for EU countries. Thank you.

  29. Hello, if I pre-order, will my copy be shipped from Europe? I am in Italy. A shipment from China would cost me a fortune in customs charges.

    Will my credit card be charged upon pre-order or upon shipment?

    I also would like to know if the autofocus adapter for Contax G Lenses is still for sale, and where.

    Thank you in advance

  30. Will you make it for e-mount without additional adapter? There are many great lanses for e-mount without AF (samyang 12, 21, 85, 135), mitakon etc and using additional adapter you limit usage because of problem with total weight.

  31. I had tried two times in the last one week to place the pre-order for this AF adapter, but cannot process thru the pre-order form. After fill in the upper section, then the lower section were blocked. My shipping address is in Hong Kong, is that the pre-order is not for Hong Kong?

    • Hi Mr. Lee,

      Can you please try it with a different browser? We have been accepting Hong Kong orders without a problem. Thanks!

  32. I’ve pre-ordered the auto focus adapter. However, could I use a 3rd party Nikon to Leica adapter to fit my Nikon lenses onto the auto focus adapter?

  33. Great product, I’m seriously considering getting it.

    Have you ever considered doing something like this with a lens element on it? something like a speedbooster but with a moving element. That could prevent the external lens movement allowing for using even heavier glass and gives us faster lenses at the same time.

    BTW, how are the lens sets changed?

  34. Looks great. Can you please tell me how I can determine which Leica M lenses are “unit focusing” vs. “floating element”? Will you publish a list of Leica M lenses that do not have any image quality issues because of the “floating elements”? It seems that you are more confident in the “unit focusing” lenses ability to work best! Thanks.

    • Hi Glenn, Its a good idea. We will try to prepare a list for everyone review. Roughly speaking, old lens tends to be unit focusing design.

      • Thank you very much. One more question please: When M lens/Techart Pro is mounted on Sony, if I do NOT want to use autofocus, but rather use the lens DOF scale and manually set focus to “zone focus”, can I do that…or will I only be able to use autofocus when the adaptor is on the camera?

  35. First of all, great work 🙂

    I see you guys don’t recommend using the adapter on A7, A7r and A7s. But will it work at all, or will the adapter just guess focus since there is no 3rd party support for PDAF at the moment on these cameras? What do you think are the odds for Sony opening 3rd party support in future firmware updates for these cameras or do you think Sony only will focus on 2gen A7 for now.

    Sony, if you’re reading this from somewhere please do something to open up for 3rd party PDAF support on 1gen A7 cameras, we know you can do it 🙂

  36. Great work done by your team, this is going to be a winner!
    One comment and some questions:
    1. You should consider constructing an adapter for Leica SL and M lenses
    2. I’m a fan of the 0.95 Noctilux. How is the AF performance on the Nocti when set at 095? Is there a pro version that I should order for this heavy lens? When will the pro version be available?
    Thanks and all the best with your business!

    • Hi John, we have tested the adapter with 50/0.95 and it works quite well. although its not as fast as lighter lens but still works. Techart PRO is the only version you can order. We will start shipping the first batch of pre-order in last March.

  37. Sorry to insist, but you are not clear enough concerning the A7 serie I with your “We do not recommand…”
    Is your autofocus is working slow, or not at all ?
    Is the AF confirm is working with those bodies, using thios adapter, as well as the lens datas in the exifs, or not ?

  38. I watched your new video on “tips”. Still unclear: will camera meter still work in aperture priority mode even though the camera viewfinder will not show the F-stop? What about other A7Rii features like image stabilization or exposure compensation- will they work as normal? Thank you. Based on answer, I will then place order!

  39. Above you have indicated you do not recommend the adapter for the Sony A6000. Apparently, this is based upon the notion that the A6000 does not have PDF, as stated in your FAQ’s. The A6000 does, however, have PDF, so I am curious as to whether you have actually tested the adapter with the A6000. I was also curious as to the response that you do not recommend use of the adapter with the A6000, which suggests that the adapter may work with the A6000, but perhaps not perfectly. Please clarify.

  40. Looks great!
    Is there Konica AR adapter available? I cannot see on the pre-order page.
    Or can third-party adapter for Konica AR Lens to Leica M works with this product?

    • You can find several Konica/Hexanon to Leica M adapters on the market that will work perfect with this adapter. No need of electrical connexionthis side of the system.

  41. I have the sony battery grip for the A7RII. Will the adapter fit with the battery grip installed on the camera?

  42. Hallo,

    I’m living in Belgium and I am like to work with this adapter so I can use my old MF lenses with my Sony A 7 RII.
    Now the question is: where and how can I buy this adapter with the necessary options

    • Techart PRO is a Leica M to Sony E AF adapter. If you are just going to use Leica M lenses, just simply purchase the Techart PRO without any accessories. For other lenses mount, you have to use an adapter to adapt other mount old lenses to Leica M mount first.

  43. I have ordered on March 2 and asked for the arrival time to Taipei. So far no response from Admin. ORDER NUMBER: 1240

    • Hi Sir, Please note that we will start shipping the first batch of pre-orders from late March onwards. Thanks.

  44. Will this autofocus my 24mm Elmarit-R and 35mm & 50mm Summicron-R Leica on my Sony A7II and how efficiently will it work?

  45. Admin- Will this work with the A7sII? A7sII has implemented phase detect auto focus. Can you verify? I would love to use some of the leica glass for video.


  46. are you planning to make it work in video mode, too? (preferably with a slower focussing speed and touch screen operation on a mobile device)

  47. Hi, can you explain how the adapter works for close ups?

    I.e., the lens must extend via the adapter motor, and then the user can focus the lens manually.

    But how can the Techart be set to extend, and remain in the extended position instead of resetting and autofocusing the next exposure ?

    • For close ups, you have to park the lens focusing ring into the closest focusing distance and use Techart PRO to focus. You can set the Techart PRO to park at the last focusing position through the smartphone app.

  48. Hi there,
    according to the specs that have been announced at leicarumors and on the homepage from 2 sellers, the maximum supported weight of the adapter is 300 grams. In the video you are showing the use with a Leica 50mm Noctilux that is 800 grams. So what is the official spec?

    • For lenses at around 300g, the performance is the best. The heavier the lens get, the speed of the motor will surely be slower. But we find it still okay when using lenses as heavy as 800g.

  49. This sounds really promising! I just bought the first A6300 in my area. When are you planning on testing the adaptor on this camera?



  50. I’m excited to get mine. I would love to see an update that allows continuous autofocus in video. Will it be able to be “parked” fully extended, for instance if I wanted to do some close-up shots in video mode?

  51. Hello,

    I’ve pre-ordered the techart pro for my A7II and I just want to know if you will communicate in your website or via email when the first batch will be sent and the next batch after etc… Just to know or estimate when we will receive the AF-adapter


    • We will communicate via Facebook page and the webpage the updated shipping status. Currently we will ship the first batch of pre-orders in late March but we expect the quantities will not be very huge. Please stay close to our website for further updates.

  52. Hello, I´ve ordered one TechartPro adapter. I´d like to ask about AF speed of the adapter with same lens on A7 II and A7r II. You tested lenses on both bodies. Is the focusing speed same on A7 II and A7r II or one is faster? Thank you. Best regards,Mark.

  53. Does the motor in your adapter work off the Camera’s battery or does it have its own power source that needs to be recharged or replaced?

  54. Great adaptor! I can make my voigtlaender 35/1.2 to autofocus. But if it can use ultra-quiet motor will be better. Anyway, it is a amazing product 🙂

  55. How do I know if the adapter I pre-ordered was shipped or not? Is that any notification e-mail sending to buyer when the delivery starts?

    • A shipment complete notification email will be sent when the adapter is shipped. First shipment will be made next week.

  56. I have Sony a7r2. Leica APO Telyt-R 180mm f/3.4 . Leica M 28 f2. zeiss planar 85mm f/1.4 . What I need to order?

  57. I will be in HK tomorrow , where can I buy this adapter in HK , do you have shop front ? Or any authorized dealer ?

    • Sorry that we are not allowed to supply to Hong Kong dealers or customers. It will be available in DC Fever soon.

  58. Hello, Great job, I already have CY lens to Leica M mount adapter. can I use the adapter with techart pro and CY mount lens ?

  59. Hope some one can give me answer. I’m really want book one for my A7R2. Do you support my Leica R 180 f3.4 and Zeiss 85 f1.4 ze (canon ef mount). What I need to order? Thanks

    • We have not tried either of the lenses but according to the specs, I believe Leica R 180 f3.4 maybe too heavy to drive. Zeiss 85 1.4 should be fine.

  60. Seems to be a great product 🙂

    Can you please explain fully the function of the L bracket? Will i be able to use the camera/Teachart PRO without it?

    Many thanks,

    • The L bracket is for levelling purposes.

      The motors of the adapter is located at the bottom of the adapter. When
      you installed the adapter and placed the camera on the table, you cannot
      balance it as the adapter has a thicker base than the camera. Adding the L
      bracket will solve the problem.

      I hope it explains clear enough.

  61. If you put the L bracket, can you still use the tripod stand bracket at the bottom of the A7ii? Possible to post a picture from the bottom perspective after mounting the L bracket?

  62. Just being noticed that my pre-order payment made early Mar has been refunded which I never ask for. What’s going on?

    • Hi Sir,
      We have sent out an email yesterday explaining the reason of the order cancellation for Hong Kong customers. May I know if you have received the email?

  63. i have received the adpator it works really well
    even works with my minolta md 58/1.4 using a md to m adaptor

    2 questions
    how to turn off the autofocusing mode
    sometimes the autofocusing mode not come on – how to reset

    • You can set a MF button in the camera menu to switch between AF/MF.

      Detach and reinstall the adapter can solve!

    • Hi SIr, You can set in the camera menu. Change a button on the camera into MF/AF control Toggle.
      The iOS app will be ready very soon.

  64. Hi from France,

    I’ve received yesterday my adaptor in very good condition and in a very short time.
    I’m so happy with it. A very great work, congratulation !
    Some returns :
    I own some fabulous Leica lenses :

    – Noctilux 50mm 1:1 works great at 2.0. Under 2.0, the phase information is poor and the focus pumps continuously.
    – Apo-Telyt-M 1:3,4/135 works great
    – Super-elmar-M 1:3,8/18 ASPH works great
    – Apo-summicron-M 1:2/75 ASPH works great

    – Fisheye-Elmarit-R 1:2,8/16 works great
    – Vario-elmarit-R 1:2,8-4,5/28-90 ASPH works great if the focus is preselected
    – Apo-telyt-R 1:2,8/280 works great if the focus is preselected

    Now I’m looking forward for the android app to enter my lenses parameters, do you have an idea when it will be on line.
    for information your adaptor mounts with Garriz half case
    Thank you again and best regards,

    • Hi Pierre !
      I hope you will share some picture soon !
      Do you have a flickr or 500pix profil or else?
      Anyway, thank you for your message
      Jb, from france to 😉

  65. Hi I bough and received the Techart Pro however I now need the Canon EF -Leica M adapter as well but on your website I cannot buy it separately (I already have the techart so I don’t need two ) I just the the canon -leica adapter how can I buy it?

  66. There seems to be version 2 firmware according to the app. I presume shipping adapters have version 2 installed already?

    • Hi Robert, For next batch delivery, the firmware will have the latest version 2. The firmware has not been released before the adapters leaving the factory to the warehouses.

  67. In the latest A7 firmware update it says:
    “Phase-detection AF is supported”

    Also when I tested the Contax G adapter on an A7 it seemed to work, (though I didn’t test the accuracy).
    Does it mean that the Leica adapter will start working with the A7?

    • Hi Sir, The latest A7 firmware from Sony only suggests the PDAF of Sony lenses is supported. Sorry that our Techart PRO adapter does not work with A7 mark 1.

  68. I hv post question on April 16th in respect of the delivery time for my order, however it never be answered and deleted. Cud you answer the delivery time for order on March 2 with order number 1240. Thank you.

  69. I have a zeiss sonnar 135 mm how can i set the lens’ s focus, beacuase i understand that i can’t set to infinity my lens but i have to do adjust but how…. ? thank

    • Hi Sir, You can set to infinity. For focusing with long focal distance lenses, you have to firstly coarse adjust the focusing ring and use the Techart PRO for fine focusing.

  70. Hopefully I will receive my Techart Pro Adaptor next week shipped from the UK wharehouse (this I was told). How do I know if the installed FW is the newest?

    • Hi Ario, For this shipment, the firmware version is still 1.0 as it was shipped to UK warehouse before 2.0 was released. Please follow our website instructions for FW upgrade.

  71. I borrowed the adapter from my Friend and tried it on my Sony A7ii with Leica 50mm summilux lens. I noticed that there is this ring of bright light in the image. I switched to the Leica 90mm elmarit lens and observed the same bright ring of light in the image. When I switched back to my normal novoflex adapter there isn’t such an effect. Wondering what’s this due to?

  72. Just received the Adaptor today. It works very well. A bit noisy, but for a first gen product, no complaint!
    Question. When you have a f1.4 lens on the adaptor, the camera can still only go to f2, i assume that f2 on the camera really just corresponds to ‘wide open’ on the lens, correct?
    I can’t seem to find the lens setting app for iOS yet. It is not out yet I assume?

    • Yes. f/2 is the corresponding wide open aperture value. The lens setting app is not ready yet. Will update you guys soon!

      • Thanks. But I am still a little confused.
        When I use say a Leica Summilux 35/1.4 on the TechArt, if I shoot at f1.4, then I set it to f2 on camera? If I shoot at f2 on the lens, then I set to f2.8 on the camera?

  73. Hallo,
    Can You tell me where I can buy and test it in Europe or maybe Belgium
    and can I also adapt Canon FD lentes with

  74. Hi, Since Leica 50mm Noctilux-M ASPH f/0.95 is a heavy lens and LEICA 90mm f/2 APO-SUMMICRON-M ASPH is a fairly long and heavy lens (in Leica M lenses standard), could they be supported by Techart Pro adapter? Any precaution when in use. Thanks.

    • Yes it can support but suggest you to support the lens by hand when use to reduce the weight imposed onto the adapter.

    • Hi Sir, YEs. However we have to further modify the FD-LM adapter to fit the Techart PRO but its not available yet.

  75. Can You tell me where I can order to receive it in Cuba
    and I can adapt one Carl Zeis 100mm F2 ZE built with mount for Canon FE lens?

  76. Hi, Is there anywhere in Hong Kong that I can purchase this? If not, and I placed an order today, when could I expect delivery in Hong Kong?

    Thanks, Ed

  77. Thank you! my adapter is here.

    however i noticed that It can only go up to f2.0 with a7r2 +noctilux 0.95 did i missed anything?

    • Hi Sir, Please use f/2.0 in the camera settings and adjust the aperture ring of the lens to adjust the iris. This will give the correct metering.

  78. Will it be possible to buy your adaptermounts like CY to M only without the AF adapter? If so how do i do this? How much would be the shipping costs for 2 adaptermounts CY to M & MD to M to austria/EU? Thanks a lot.

  79. Hi so can i mount the Voigtlander Nokton 50mm f/1.1 Lens directly on my A7rii using your adapter? Will it work wih autofocus?

  80. No Hong Kong delivery? When will this be an officially released product and no in longer presale? At that time will it be available in Hong Kong to purchase through a distributer?

    If purchased online today when could I expect delivery to New York City?

    Thanks, Ed

  81. Hi, i’m very intrested by your adapter for my sony A7II. But, because i’m a student, i’ve a limited budget. Can you tell me if i can reuse my leica m adapter i already have (to minolta and pentax k) instead of yours. I’ve seen above that you say “However we have to further modify the FD-LM adapter to fit the Techart PRO”. This adapter transform my lenses to leica m lens so i don’t think it’s a problem but can you confirm this point ? Thanks in advance. Kind regards from France.

      • Ok ! Many thanks. I’m ready to order the adapter ? What’s the estimated delivery time from today ?

        And a last question, you say that the maximum weight supported is 700gr. For heavy lenses, is it possible to support the lens on a tripod (by an adapted ring) and to let the camera “in the air” ? With a weight of 600gr for the body, maybe in this configuration we are able to use heavier lens (>800gr) ? I will do the shutting action with a remote by the way to avoid obstruct the focus mechanism.

        • If you place an order today, we expect to ship in around early July. Thanks.

          Yes we have users doing the same thing as yours.

  82. I have just received the adapter, very impressive. However, my iPhone cannot find the LM EA7 to check firmware. The instructions tell me to “set the camera body aperture to F90”? Please can you tell me how to do that? Should a lens be mounted to perform this?

    • When you install the Techart PRO to the camera, you can then change the aperture readings on the camera screen. Change it to F90 and take a shot to enter the update mode.

  83. I have received my adapter and it works well. I did not know that there was an R to M adapter option when I ordered. Leica’s R to M does not fit. Which third party R adapters will work with the Techart M/FE adapter? Has anyone tried other third party R adapters like Novoflex or Fotodiox?

    Can I order a Techart R adapter separately, having acquired the M adapter?

    • Hi Sir, The English manual is now available for download in the “DOWNLOAD” page in at the top menu.
