Techart has released the 2nd generation of the Leica M – Sony E Autofocus Adapter launched six years ago with significant design improvements.

Featuring a more powerful motor, sleeker ‘bulge-less’ design and better autofocus performance the new LM-EA9 is a motor-driven adapter which replaces the focusing mechanism of the lens. By communicating with the Sony cameras, the extendable bayonet will move back and forth to achieve focus. As well as providing compatibility with the Leica M mount, lenses with other mounts can also be converted into autofocus by stacking an additional conversion adapter. The advanced mechanical design positions four small servo motors radially around the adapter to provide a much stronger support with greater stability and higher efficiency. New Uni-case machining has also significantly reduced the number of parts used reducing the adapter’s size.

The LM-EA9 is now compatible with all and the latest Sony E-mount cameras, including but not limited to α6000, α6100, α6300, α6500, α6400, α6600, α7c, α1, α7, α9, α9 II, α7 II, α7 III, α7 IV, α7R, α7R II, α7R III, α7R IV, α7S, α7S II, α7S III. The new Techart Leica M – Sony E Autofocus Adapter (LM-EA9) retails for US$399. It is available to order via the official website and authorised resellers. Shipment will start in late August.
