...    When I say it's not recognised by the camera, I mean that when I look at the lcd screen on the top of the camera there is no f stop number and trying to change it has no effect. Also, it doesn't react to auto focus inputs. It's just "dead".

As I said, it works fine on my other camera bodies.

I had that problem when I bought a new 5Ds.  My 30 year old 50mm f/1.8 (with the focussing scale) did the same on the 5Ds even though it was happily working on my EOS R.  I cleaned the camera and lens contacts with isopropyl alcohol and now it works fine on all my EOS cameras.
