Megadap, an innovative manufacturer specializing in camera lens accessories, proudly announces the launch of the ETZ21 Pro. This third genera<on of its automa<c Adapter ETZ series. Designed to seamlessly integrate with Nikon Z mirrorless cameras, both full frame and APS-C, the ETZ21 Pro continues to offer photographers the ability to use Sony E mount AF lenses, unlocking 100+ new AF lenses to Nikon Z camera users.

An important aspect to note is that the ETZ21 Pro builds upon the foundation set by its highly acclaimed predecessor, the ETZ21, delivering the same excep<onal autofocus (AF) func<onali<es and capabilities, while incorpora<ng mechanical enhancements to offer a more seamless and user-friendly experience. Megadap’s engineers have carefully considered customer feedback and industry demands, resulting in two cri<cal changes that significantly elevate the performance of the adapter.

Firmware Update Method
The first notable enhancement lies in the firmware update method. While the ETZ21 required firmware updates via an included USB cable, the ETZ21 Pro introduces a more innova<ve
approach. Users can now conveniently update the adapter’s firmware directly through their Nikon Z camera, with both the adapter and lens securely installed.

Refined Mechanical Design
The second crucial improvement lies in refined mechanical design of the ETZ21 Pro to ensure improved compa<bility and user interaction. The connec<ng pads on the adapter, previously used for USB cable upgrades, have been removed, resulting in a sleeker and more streamlined design. Additionally, the ETZ21 Pro features a re-designed lens release bu\on, ensuring smooth and effortless lens detachment. Tamron lens owners can now enjoy improved mechanical fitting specifically tailored for Tamron lenses, providing photographers with a secure and reliable connection for op<mal performance.

New Firmware Upgrades
Megadap has developed an upgraded firmware, available for both the ETZ21 and ETZ21 Pro models. This firmware introduces a range of valuable features and enhancements designed to
elevate the overall performance of the adapters. Key highlights of the firmware upgrade include:

  1. Nikon Z cameras will recognize the ETZ as a Nativeve Lens
    Previous Megadap firmware and similar compe<tor products are seen by Nikon cameras as an adapter ring, liming some functionality. This recognition ensures a seamless integration experience, allowing photographers to fully utilize the capabilities of their Nikon Z cameras.
  2. Support for Customizable Buttons
    Utilize the customizable buttons on Sony lenses, offering enhanced control and flexibility in their shooting experience.
  3. Lens Brand and Model Information in EXIF EXIF data now includes detailed lens brand and model information, facilitating efficient organization and post-processing. Please note that certain lenses may not display the brand name in EXIF data.
  4. Enhanced Compatability
    The upgraded firmware ensures compa<bility with the latest Nikon Z8 and Z9 cameras.
  5. In-Camera Lens Manual Correction
    The firmware supports in-camera lens manual correction, enabling photographers to optimize image quality by fine-tuning lens parameters.
  6. Improved Focus Performance
    Enhanced focus performance in challenging environments, such as low-light conditions and when focusing on solid color objects, ensuring precise and accurate results.
  7. Enhanced High-Speed Continuous Shooting
    Improved stabilization in high-speed continuous shooting performance, delivering consistent speed and exposure accuracy, allowing photographers to capture every critical moment flawlessly.

Both the ETZ21 and ETZ21 Pro share the same high-quality chip and functonality. Megadap acknowledges the value of its customers’ investment in the ETZ21 and wishes to assure them that their purchase remains a reliable and capable tool. For new customers, the ETZ21 Pro is introduced as the latest and most advanced version in the market, offering the latest updates and enhancements that address photographers’ evolving needs.
