Awesome. Now Techart, onward to further refining the M to E-mount adapter! This is a fabulous but often frustrating product line that yearns to be perfected! Announce a version 2 with improved performance and compatibility with eye-detect, and I'll buy another one!

Would love to see the results from the 24 or 17 tse with this adaptor on the gfx.

Anyone testing this option?

I don't have either lens or the adapter, but I have seen examples of both and they do quite well on the GFX.

There are a lot of reports/shots on both the Techpro, and T/S lens on the GFX Facebook page.

Not too attractive ... I am waiting a bit before purchasing such an adapter. Maybe Steelsring has a better customer service...

newest review of the Techart by Jim Sullivan on GFX FB.

I canít answer as for one versus the other, but I can tell you that Techart saying their adapter works with ďall modern Canon lensesĒ is not true. The 100-400 II is a sh!tshow on this adapter and unusable in my opinion. Errors range from stupid-long startup time (has to cycle from infinity to MFD and back to infinity at startup - at 100mm takes about a second, but at 400mm takes about 6 seconds and mimics a lockup), aperture reads incorrectly (f/1.8 = f/4.5 for example), cannot reliably achieve accurate autofocus lock 25% of the time (increases to 50%...Show more

There's an easy way around that. If you use the hyperlink tags, you can post the url as both text and link, like so...

Fred makes it very easy with a button (the globe with the chain in front of it) that launches pop ups to complete the correct syntax.

Anyone know what the button on the Techart does, if anything? Or if a manual is available?

That was/is me. They were unresponsive to three separate contacts requesting support, each sent in a different way: one submitted by using the form on their website, one sent directly to the support email address on their website, and one sent by replying to my invoice for the adapter. They had previously replied when I would email them to ask about ship date and tracking information, so I know they read my emails but could not be bothered to respond. I had to use the PayPal dispute process to get my money back, and they didn't respond to PayPal, either, so this refund is being forced on them by PayPal. Right now it's now somewhere between LA and Hong Kong.

I believe it enables firmware updating via USB. Don't use it when it is attached to a camera or lens.
