Re: Third party lenses for Canon RF mount?

For the Samyang AF 14mm 2.8 RF, I can report that on a Canon R (FW 1.6.0.)

  • the lens registers as "Samyang RF 14mm F2.8"
  • Correction data is provided for Peripheral Illumination Correction, Distortion Correction, and DLO which all can be enabled (and indeed improve jpg data)
  • EVF high speed refresh is disabled for the lens
  • autofocus works fast and reliably (including eye AF)

It seems that they got the firmware sorted out well enough. And I think that if Samyang would release their pancakes with a RF mount they might sell quite well.
