Cannon 24mm Tilt-Shift works on Nikon Z7 II

It works! I can control the aperture of the lens through the camera and all metadata are transferred from the lens to the camera.

Now I can use my Sigma, and Canon Lenses on my Z7II

Works great so far with my Canon 24-70 2.8L, Sigma 14-24 2.8, and Sigma 40mm 1.4! I've been a switch hitter for some time, because I like Canons AF for sports and wildlife, but also like Nikon's color saturation, and landscape/astro capabilities. The Fringer allows me to buy EF mounts (larger selection, better prices) and use them on my R5, as well as my Z7II, saving me thousands in lens costs! Af is snappy, and the adapter fits very snuggly and doesn't rattle like my Viltrox! I haven't gotten to try it on my 300 f2.8L as its at my house in Mexico, but its my understanding that it will work great if I attach the Fringer to the lens first, like you do with a TC. Can't wait to try that soon. I highly recommend you get one if you have more than one system.

Love my Canon lenses, especially my 100-400 L Series. But, I also love my Nikon cameras. Also, it was time to start looking into mirrorless cameras. What to do? Simple, get a Nikon Z and this adapter. Canon lens, Nikon Z camera....Problem solved! I use this adapter with a Z-5 and a Z-50. So far it has worked beyond expectations on both with the Canon EF and EF-S lenses I own. The big one was the 100-400 L I use for birds. It focuses quickly and accurately. Data is listed properly on the files and the results are wonderful. I looked at other adapters but all seemed to fall short for many users. This seemed to be the make and model that most people found worked well. This is not a cheap item. Fact is its the most expensive adapter for EF to NZ I saw. But the deciding fact is it works perfectly (for me and many) and its worth every penny. Just being able to use my Canon 100-400 L lens on my NIkon Z bodies saved me a lot of money. Of course there are many lenses out there and I have not checked all of them. I did take this to my local photo shop for a friend who works there to try out. She tested it with her favorite Canon 135 F2 L lens on a Z6 body and was amazed at how well it worked. She says this unit is a game changer. I agree.

100% not a good buy

From day one this adapter had a lot of wiggle and play with any lens I threw on it. I have the Zeiss Otus set in EF and the 14-24, 24-70, 70-200 in Sigma EF and every lens had a little play. It seemed to still work okay until about 6 months... no lens will lock into place. It broke. This means the Nikon won’t recognize the lens unless you take out the battery, un-mount and remount the lens, then don’t breath or move and be careful the lens doesn’t fall off. I’m super annoyed. Thinking of just switching to Canon since there is no super solid adapter solution. I bought this as it was the most expensive thinking you get what you pay for. But in this case, the cheap options seem to actually be better in quality.

I have been waiting for this!

I am a Nikon guy, have been for nearly thirty years. But, I also am a Canon guy, have been for a long time. I like Nikon cameras but I also love Canon lenses. When Nikon introduced the Z mount it opened the door to lots of options. Now I have the set up I have longed for, my Canon 100-400 L Series 2 on my Z body. Its a match made in heaven! I have to say that I get better results with this lens on my Nikon body than I do with it on a 7D Mk 2 Canon body. Also I find my Canon 70-300 works wonderfully on my Nikon Z. I can now have my perfect match up, A Nikon I love that will work with either Nikon or Canon lenses . I can pick the best lens for the project now. The Fringer has worked 100% for me. I get fast focus, correct data, and nice sharp images. Its well made, solid, fits right, easy to get on and off and so far works perfectly. I like the option of the mount that you can use or easily remove. I also like the USB plug so that you can just plug this thing into your computer and update it if ever needed. I looked at many adapters before buying this one. Many cost less but reviews pointed out their problems. This unit seems to have the best ratings and I am here to say that it earns high marks from me. After all, why go cheap on an adapter to put high dollar glass on your high dollar camera? This thing is worth every penny for my usage and I would buy it again.

It works GREAT! BUT weather sealed lens gaskets don't touch.

Function overall is great! I love Fringer adapters and use them for GFX. My only issue is that lens gaskets don't even touch the mount on the EF side. Needs to have an updated version made where the Z mount side HAS a gasket, and the EF side touches the lens gasket.

Now I can use my Canon lenses on my new camera

This works great. I really didn't know what to expect. Using it on my new Nikon Z6ll. I'm using it with my Canon lenses and everything works great. I think the focus is faster than it was on my 1DX.

Asked by: Nikhil
The compatibility of this product is much better than other adapters like Fringer EF-FX, NF-FX, etc. it works with most of EF and EFS mount lenses except some really old ones. There is no need to test and optimize every lens to be supported. The adapter will do the optimization automatically. Thus, there isn't a detailed compatibility list. But if you encounter any compatibility issue, please report it. Future firmware update may solve it.

My Z7 meters (and focuses) the same with this as with the Nikon FTZ, or no adapter. The camera settings control the adapter. On a Z7 that normally means focus and meter at the choosen shooting aperture up through f5.6.
