Canon M6 Mark II + Third Party EF-M Lens

I'm hoping someone can help.

I have recently purchased a Canon EOS M6 Mark II Mirrorless Camera.  I was hoping to take some large landscape shots and so after looking at reviews but budget considerations, opted to pick up a Samyang 12mm F2.0 Prime EF-M Lens

I am able to get the lens onto the camera, but when trying to shoot, it refuses to take a picture. From basic research online it seems this is because the lens is not communicating with the camera - which as a third party lens, I'm lead to believe is normal.

So does anyone know how I get around this issue? is there a way of setting the camera up so that it doesn't require the connection? I can't seem to find anything. The camera is already running the most up to date firmware 1.0.1

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. TIA

Bobin
