New TechArt AF adapter: Canon EF to Fujifilm GFX unveiled! Sep 20, 2017
New TechArt AF adapter: Canon EF to Fujifilm GFX unveiled!

Guangzhou China, Sep 20, 2017 – The innovative adapter developer, Techart, who has previously launched the first autofocus adapter for manual lenses, has unveiled the world’s first Autofocus adapter for Canon EF lenses & Fujifilm GFX 50S camera. The Techart EF-GFX adapter provides autofocus function as well as in-body aperture control for using Canon /Sigma EF-mount lenses on the Fujifilm GFX body.

Techart has tested extensively on the modern Canon / Sigma EF-mount lenses in the market and found the autofocus performance on the GFX is satisfactory. Aperture of the lenses can also be adjusted on the camera by simply turning the command dial. The EF-GFX adapter currently supports AF-S mode for shooting and supports the lens Image Stabilization function (if applicable). Focal length and aperture data will also be saved into the adapter.

Techart is also working to unlock the AF-C and video-shooting feature. It is expected to be seen in future firmware release. The firmware of the adapter is user-upgradable and can be done by simply plugging the adapter into a computer via the Micro USB cable and running the update program.
The short flange distance of Fujifilm GFX 50S provides a perfect platform for adapting different mount lenses. Although not every one of the full frame EF-mount lenses has a big enough image circle to cover the GFX sensor, Techart EF-GFX adapter still opens up a wide range of lenses options for GFX users to consider.


Pricing and Availability:

The Techart Canon EF – Fujifilm GFX Autofocus Adapter is currently available for pre-order at our official website ( The recommended retail price is USD 499/pc. Free shipping will be provided during the promotion period.
Delivery will commence from mid Oct onwards. 1-year warranty is included.

David at reviews Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon Sep 09, 2017
David at reviews Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon
FM member @DavidBM just posted his review on the Batis 25mm f/2 Distagon.

Here is an excerpt from David’s conclusion:

“I recommend this lens. If you want a fast 24mm class lens, there is no alternative in native mount, and this is better than any I know of in any mount. I own the lens, have had it since fairly soon after it was released, and find it a very useful optic. If you like zooms, though, as I discussed above, you will get good performance from most of the Sony zooms at 25 mm. So you need to know that you need the bokeh possibilities, slight resolution and contrast advantages, handling advantages or perhaps flare advantages of the Batis prime.” - Read the entire review at

Jordan at Admiring Light reviews Sony FE 70-200f/2.8 GM Sep 03, 2017
Jordan at Admiring Light reviews Sony FE 70-200f/2.8 GM
FM member @Jman13 ( just posted his review on the Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM:

Here is Jordan's conclusion:

  1. Robustly built lens with very solid construction
  2. Excellent haptics, including positive switches and well damped zoom and focus rings
  3. Very fast, quiet and accurate autofocus
  4. Outstanding image sharpness at all apertures
  5. Excellent color and contrast
  6. Beautiful out of focus rendering
  7. Excellent control of both lateral and longitudinal chromatic aberration
  8. Excellent image stabilization good for around 4-5 stops of extra handholdability
  1. Expensive
  2. Some distortion throughout the zoom range
  3. Some vignetting that doesn’t go away when stopping down

The Sony FE 70-200mm f/2.8 GM is an outstanding telephoto zoom lens. The lens is very solidly built and has a pro-grade feel like anything out of Canon or Nikon. It’s also outstanding optically, with great sharpness, contrast, bokeh and color and a very fast and accurate autofocus system. It’s truly a pro grade lens, though you’ll certainly pay for it.

Photozone reviews Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G Sep 02, 2017
Photozone reviews Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G
Klaus Schroiff at just posted his review on the Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G.
Note: Imatest charts are positioned at close distance and therefore these results could differ when compared to testing the lens at infinity.

Here is an excerpt from his verdict:

“The Sony FE 12-24mm f/4 G is a bit of a surprising lens in a couple of ways. Upon first contact, you will notice how small it is compared to similar (DSLR-)offerings. It's even more obvious in term of weight (565g vs 1150g for the Sigma 12-24mm f/4 HSM ART). Now you may expect that this comes with a couple of compromises but there are actually only a few. The resolution characteristic is very decent. It's already pretty good at f/4 (except at 24mm) and quite impressive between f/5.6 and f/8.”

“If ultra-wide perspectives are simply your thing then the Sony is a no-brainer. Highly recommended!”
