Woah. Good news.

Prototype or already released adapter?

Production sample, ready for release soon.

They also showed it working with EF-E adapter on top of it, so you can use Canon lenses as well.

Wait,...hold on.....what? Is the a passive adapter or an active adapter?

Ok....I'm about to take a super long crazy shot in the dark here. We know that Nikon is buying the Sony A7-III's IMX410 sensor, this is now fact...and a zero supprise to everybody here.

Here is the crazy part.....is it possible that Sony has leased their Emount lens and focus protocol to Nikon for all their new lenses? I could certainly see why Nikon would rather buy it than design it themselves. Could Nikon also lease Sony PDAF pattents too? And Sony IBIS also?

The cost of just buying it could beat the cost of developing it from scratch and trying to mature it as fast as they can. Buying an already tested and mature system could be A LOT easier!

Nah....on second thought. This kind of industry camera collusion never happens like that in reality. Plus, Sony is not known for selling itself to customers in that way.

This is just crazy talk.......

Wow it works with the EF-E adapter on top. What company is developing the adapter, may I ask? Or is it a small indie producer?

Active with electronic contacts, so AF works.

Don't some of the Fuji lenses cover full frame? I would be surprised if anyone made an adapter to fuji though, would be a small market I imagine. 

Z mount flange is 16mm, E mount is 18mm, X mount is 17.7mm. Maybe they can shave off 0.3mm.

That looks like the original TechART Pro stacked on it as well I'm presuming?

Which would mean Z cameras have not only picked up the lens lineup of Sony and Canon but also have AF of a huge array of manual lenses.

When you throw in the ProRes RAW output upgrade thats quite a week !

I meant their E to Leica M one which you then use other dumb adapters on to also mount R, C/Y etc 

Useless for AFC but great for getting one shot AF for blind old gits like me !
