Rokinon / Samyang AF 14/2.8 EF - Update

Rokinon / Samyang AF 14/2.8 EF - Update

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.

Best regards,

Samyang

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?

    I have the same prob­lem with a sayang 14mm f2.8 rf mount lens!!!
    If there is a firmware fix do i have to buy a dock­ing station?

      Yea, you will need it to update the firmware of the lens.

    I have the same issue with my Samyang 14mm 2.8 RF native lens. I just post­ed a video on my youtube chan­nel about it.

      Thank you for your Infor­ma­tion. I had con­tact with the Rokinon/ Samyang team and they replied that the prob­lem with the new Canon R5 and R6 is known and they are work­ing on it. So we have to wait for a firmware-update of the lenses.
