As I wrote in my last article, the in-body stabilizer does not work on my new Canon EOS R5 with the Rokinon / Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8* in the EF version with the Canon EF-R Mount Converter. Yesterday I wrote an EMail to Samyang and described the problem.
The following answer came as early as today:
Dear Gerd-Uwe Neukamp
Thank you for reaching out to Samyang.
We’re very sorry for your inconvenience with our lens. Unfortunately, the lens has a functional problem with the latest Canon R5 and R6 cameras which has recently been released after the launch of Samyang AF14/2.8 EF.
As you mentioned, we’re working on the development of new firmware to fix the current issue with the newest Canon camera version. We hope it will be informed to customers as soon as possible. Thanks for choosing Samyang lens.
I am very pleased that Samyang reacts so quickly and hope for a forthcoming firmware update that will make the excellent lens on the R5 even better. If someone has the RF version of the lens: does it work with the in-body stabilization of the EOS R5?
