    TechArt EF to GFX Adapter with GFX 100

    Hi,

    I have rented a GFX100 over the weekend as I am thinking about buying it because of the IBIS. Now I noticed that my TechArt EF to GFX Adapter which works great on my GFX50s, locks the Aperture at the smallest Aperture (b.e. 22 or 32) of each lens.
    I searched the net and found only one other user in the Facebook Fuji GFX User Group, who said that the Techart Adapter doesn't work with the GFX 100 together with the Sigma 40mm 1.4 Art Lens. But no mentions of other lenses.
    Does somebody in this Forum has an experience with this combination?

    Thanks
    Frank

    Hi there

    I do, and my experience is the same as yours.

    I still have my Cambo adapter that I purchased a GFX50s. It has no electrical conmection to the camera body so I am hopeful it will work. I will check to see if it does when I return home from my current trip.

    Ok, thanks, that saves me hours of testing. And as the last firmware update for the Techart Adapter is from 2018 and all links to docs and firmware on the Techart website are broken, I doubt that they will make it work.. But they are still selling it..
    Strange people.

    Hi, I am using the Techart adapter on my GFX 100 without issues. So far I have used it with the 17mm and 24mm T/S lenses, the 1,4 35mm II, the 40 mm pancake and they all work as advertised. Even the 90mm Tamron Macro works well, somewhat surprising. AF hunts a bit, but is otherwise ok. I have a few more Canon lenses to test as time allows, so we'll see if any issue pops up.
    Sorry to hear about your troubles.

    Cheers
    Arne

    Sorry, there was no information supplied, not a scrap of paper, just the box. But I got it only a couple of months ago, so I guess it has the latest firmware installed.

    Cheers
