09 Dec Techart Pro review – Leica M to Sony E-mount Autofocus adapter

Source: Mirror Lessons

Since its announcement earlier this year, we’ve been curious to try the Techart Pro adapter. Up until recently, the use of Leica, Zeiss or Voigtlander M lenses was strictly a manual operation and to be honest, this was part of what made the user experience so enjoyable since all these lenses have precise mechanical rings.

The thought of autofocus with any of these lenses was just a dream. By including an internal motor that moves the lens back and forth and works with the phase detection points of your Sony mirrorless camera, the Chinese company brought that dream to life. But how does it work and more importantly, is it reliable?

To answer these questions, we produced an-in depth video review that you can find below.

We decided to go with the video format because there are tricky parts to explain related to metering and EXIF data. You will also find a summary of our conclusions and a gallery of sample images shot with the Techart Pro adapter, the Voigtlander Ultron VM 35mm f/1.7 and Heliar VM 75mm f/1.8 lenses.
