Sigma 100-400mm 1:5-6.3 DG DN on Techart TZE01 adapter

Frankly, I didn't expect this combination to work well if at all, but it actually does. Adapted long telephoto lenses often have difficulty focusing or fail completely. I'm glad this lens works pretty well on Techart TZE01 adapter on Nikon cameras.

Focusing is slightly slower than on Sony cameras, but it's still very useable. I don't think it's good for fast moving subjects though. Focusing seems to work fine at all focal lengths, all focus points, all focus modes, even eye-AF is very fast and precise.

One thing doesn't work though, the lens OS and IBIS conflict with each other, so one must be turned off. I made a mistake having both on, so got lots of blurry images. In my testing optical image stabilization on the lens is more effective than IBIS, so it's better to have OS turned on and IBIS off in the camera.
