Fujifilm X-T4 vs Nikon Z6 Focus Tracking Tests using Fringer Adapters and Canon EF 300mm f/2.8L II

Fringer has shared a video, where he compares the performance of the Canon EF300mm f/2.8L II on the (pre-production) Fujifilm X-T4 and the Nikon Z6 using the Fringer smart autofocus adapter.

You can see the video down below.

The results:

  • Nikon Z6 at 9 fps: sharp images 20/25
  • Fujifilm X-T4 at 14 fps: sharp images 22/25

His overall conclusion:

  1. When adapting the Canon EF300mm f/2.8L II on the Fringer adapters, both cameras perform very well
  2. in stills mode, focus tracking is better on the Fujifilm X-T4. The X-T4 has a higher frame rate and also a higher accuracy (88% vs 80%)
  3. in movie mode both cameras track very well

You can get the Fringer EF-FX Pro II at AmazonUS, BHphoto and Adorama.
