Back in the summer of 2019, Techart released the TZE-01 adapter – an impressively thin metal ring that makes possible some previously unseen lens-camera combinations. It does this by way of an integrated circuit board that, with the aid of some reverse-engineering on Techart’s part, allows for a vast number of Sony lenses to function fully on compatible Nikon Z-mount camera bodies.
The adapter itself appears, at first, to be low on compromises, with the only concerns of note being a lack of compatibility with Samyang / Rokinon lenses and the inability to even mount the adapter on the Nikon Z50 and Z fc bodies. Unfortunately, we found some compatibility issues with a few other Nikon cameras in our testing (more on that later), but it worked swimmingly with a Nikon Z5, so that’s what we used for our test drive.
Note: Techart has confirmed that with firmware 4.1, the TZE-01 is fully compatible with the Nikon Z6 II and Z7 II cameras. You can download the latest firmware from Techart here.
Design and handling
The 2mm difference in depth between the E and Z mounts isn’t a ton of space to work with.
As you can see, the TZE-01 is thin.
