  1. Installed and done a quick test on my A7RII. The updating process is a bit quirky but it worked. None of the Nikkor lenses I currently own are listed on the compatibility chart, nevertheless here is what I found. Note I don’t have a stop watch or any test equipment, it’s only what I found pointing the camera with continuous focus at various things in the garden and pressing the shutter. 50mm 1.4 G – perfect. 16-35mm f4 – perfect. 85mm 1.4 seemed slightly slower than native but very usable. 70-200 f2.8 no attempt at focusing, but when pre- focused manually it locked on nicely – no hunting like it did with the earlier firmware. So, pretty happy with the update and hopefully in time with future updates it will be as good as the Techart Pro is for the M mount.
