Techart TZE-01 on Z50. No cheese.

It won't go in. Z50 has extra frame around sensor, in the space opened up by use of smaller sensor. Techart adapter has its own plastic plate around inside circumference of adapter, on which electrical contacts sit. Both frames collide and hence adapter does not fit.

This is not a problem with dumb adapter which does not have to add anything to connect electrical pins.

Potentially, techart can redesign its electrical contract area to not conflict with the new design of Z50, but it will be a new adapter, not a fix for existing ones.

This is a deal breaker for me, at least for now, as I was planning to use Sony 18-135 and small primes until nikon alternatives become available.
