quirk and workaround Samyang 12mm f/2.0 NCS + EOS M50

Normally: If you want to magnify 5 or 10 times to focus manually very precise you push a button, and than turn the dial one or the other way around to choose between 5 or 10 times magnification.

Using this lens+camera combination:  after pushing the button everything is still normal, but as soon as you choose the desired magnification an error occurs. You can only reset the camera by releasing the battery!

Workaround:

After you push the button but before you select 5 or 10 times magnification, you push on the screen a "info" button, which centers the magnification box. Once you did this, everything works normal when you actually magnify 5 or 10 times. This stays the same until you switch the camera off, and back on again, after this you need to do the workaround thing again.

Canon EOS M50 (EOS Kiss M)
