Meike has announced a new Canon EF to Nikon Z autofocus mount adapter. The adapter promises full electronic control of Canon’s DSLR lenses through a range of Nikon mirrorless cameras.
New Adapter MK-EFTZ-B promises support for all Canon EF and EF-S lenses and Nikon Z5, Z6, Z7, Z50, Z6 II and Z7 II cameras. Meike also promises full autofocus support and electronic contacts allow photographers to control the lens directly through the camera as if Canon lenses were native Nikon Z-mount.
This electronic connection also means that Meike is confident enough to say that the lens stabilization and image stabilization in the camera body work with this adapter. The company also claims that the adapter transmits full EXIF data to the camera, made possible by the “excellent signal transmission” of its “gold-plated pins”.
As is usually the case with Meike product launches, the company only provides the bare minimum when it comes to information and there isn’t much else to do. The company claims the adapter weighs 87 grams, measures 69 x 28.3mm, and is made from high-quality materials.
On that note, Meike believes so strongly in the build of the adapter that he promises it’s reliable to use and even has “strong” dust and water resistance.
The side of the adapter features an “AV” dial, but the company doesn’t explain what it does.
The Meike MK-EFTZ-B autofocus adapter for Canon EF/EF-s lenses to Nikon Z series cameras is available directly from the company’s website. for $160.
A busy year for Meike
Meike has only released a few products in short bursts in the past, but its 2022 strategy is much more robust. It’s been a busy year for Meike, which has been building its line of lenses and adapters quite aggressively since last spring. The company’s strategy does not seem to be limited to targeting one or a few brands of cameras or lens mounts, but covers practically everyone.
It launched a 7.5mm f/2.8 lens and a 12mm f/2 lens for multiple camera mounts as well as an 8mm f/2.8 for Micro Four Thirds cameras in May and early June. It added an 85mm f/1.8 autofocus lens for E-mount cameras as well as a 50mm f/0.95 lens for APS-C cameras later that month as well.
In August, the company also launched a 10mm f/2 APS-C prime lens as well as a set of autofocus extension tubes for Panasonic cameras.
