The Techart III EF to E-mount adapter got the new firmware update which improves the autofocusing performance. The adapter sells through many eBay sellers (Click here). And here are some first tests:
1) Kasw: “I just purchased the Saker Falcon Lite Equivalent “Techart” EF to NEX III electronic adapter that enable PDAF on non-A7R II Cameras(a6100 in my case). The result is impressive, there’s still misfocus and back-and-forth, but is much less than other adapters, AF-C also works, there is a video I shot while using Canon 50mm f1.8 STM: https://youtu.be/8ssJUe-TpBk
The noise from the background is actually from the lens. Anyway, impressive result when compare with Sony’s native 50mm f1.8: https://youtu.be/cbXWk8dE29s”

Low angle camera movements created with Shootools Skate Dolly. Edited in Premiere Pro, noise reduction made wit Neat Video v4, custom regrain.

Ming Thein explains why the A7rII seems to be the best camera for the new Milvus line:
Much has been said about manual focus, and I agree with the current state of DSLR viewfinders, it’s not very practical in the field. Sony has solved this problem for us to some extent with the A7RII. Live view magnification and the stabiliser extend the working envelope of the Otuses – and any MF lenses – enormously.
And Zeiss photographer Greg Watermann shot a video with the a7R2 and Milvus 35/2 lens:
