Unlock Autofocus for Leica lenses with the Techart TZM-02 Adapter

The Nikon adapter, combined with the Techart TZM-02 adapter, opens up new possibilities for using Leica M lenses with full autofocus capabilities. This setup may seem expensive at $400, but let’s explore whether it’s worth the investment.

Coming to you from Benj HaischThis practical video introduces the functionality of Techart TZM-02 converter, allows you to use Leica M lenses with autofocus on Nikon Z cameras, including features such as full tracking and continuous autofocus. The Techart adapter allows the use of third-party lenses, such as those from Voigtlander, Zeiss and TTArtisan, making it a versatile addition to your kit.

Haisch explains that the converter works by moving the entire lens back and forth to focus. Smaller and lighter lenses work better because they are easier to move. In our tests, Sumicron 28mm proved to be the most comfortable, while heavier lenses such as Summilux 50mm still perform well despite their weight. The practical implication is that you can achieve closer focusing distances with this adapter than with traditional Leica M lenses, which typically have a minimum focusing distance of around one meter.

In practice, autofocus performance is quite effective. Haisch notes that while it may not match the smoothness of leading systems like Sony’s E-mount, it’s reliable enough for most uses, including shooting children or even Even the wedding. The system still hunts occasionally, especially with heavier lenses, but overall it performs admirably. The ability to autofocus over traditional manual lenses is a significant advantage, providing flexibility without sacrificing the quality of Leica glass.

Although the adapter has limitations, such as having to occasionally find focus and needing a lighter lens for optimal performance, it offers a unique way to bridge the gap between focusing systems Modern automatic and classic manual lenses. This setup makes for an enjoyable experience, combining the quality of a Leica lens with the convenience of autofocus on a Nikon Z camera. Watch the video above for the full scoop on Haisch.
