Techart Launches the 2nd Generation of M to Z Autofocus Adapter TZM- 02

2 years ago, Techart has revolutionized the market by converting Leica M lenses into autofocus lenses for Nikon Z camera users. Now in 2023, Techart has advanced the idea and make the adapter into a much more solid and work-friendly gadget for both photographer and videographers.

An adapter with a more robust motor, sleeker design and more powerful autofocus performance has been developed. The 2nd generation of Techart Leica M – Nikon Z Autofocus Adapter (TZM-02) is compatible with all Nikon’s latest camera models like Z9, Z7II and even Z30. It achieved the world’s first bulge-less design compared to other motor driven adapters. 4 radically positioned, small and light servo motors give 4 axis support to allow much faster focusing and greater support to heavier lenses. Fast and accurate autofocus can be achieved, even when shooting videos with AF. TZM-02 is offering a whole new experience with all the legendary manual lenses.

New Motor Design and Position
No longer a big bulk motor being placed at the bottom of the adapter like other product of similar kinds, Techart Leica M – Nikon Z Autofocus Adapter Gen II (TZM- 02) has pushed forwarded the mechanical design to be 4 light and small servo motors positioned radially around the adapter. The new unicase machining technology also helped significantly reduced the number of parts used and allowed for further compression of the adapter’s size. The new design also allows heavier lenses to be used without wobbling.

Sleeker Design
The world’s first bulge-less design (when compared to all other motor driven adapters in the market) creates no obstructions to tripod accessories, stabilisers, or bigger lenses.

Not Only M Mount, But Manual Lenses in ANY Mount
Thanks to the short flange distance of the Leica M-mount, users can stack additional adapters to enjoy autofocus with literally ANY lenses with TZM-02, not to mention the lightweight and smaller-in-size characteristics of M lenses. The manual lenses could be but not limited to the following mounts: Canon FD, Leica R, L39, Nikon F, Canon EF, Pentax K, C/Y, Minolta MD, M42, Olympus OM, Exakta, Konica AR, Contarex CR, QBM, ARRI, ALPA, DKL.

Not just Photo, but Fast and Accurate Video Autofocus
Compared to other motor-driven adapters in the market, TZM-02 not only excels in AF-S/AF-C shooting in stills mode, it also performs extremely well during video AF.

TZM-02 is the first adapter of its kind which can support video AF. Users may now apply the unique visual effects of old manual lenses onto modern cameras like Z9 to create unique footage. Eye tracking function also works flawlessly in video mode.

Support Latest Nikon Camera Models
The TZM-02 is compatible with all the latest, including but not limited to Z6, Z6II, Z7, Z7II, Z5, Z30, Z50, Zfc and most importantly, Z9.

Effortless Firmware Update
The Firmware update process has never been easier and more reliable. Users simply need to connect the adapter via its USB dock on the adapter’s back cap, run the updated software in their computers, click the software and the button “update”. Both Mac and Window OS are supported.
