R6 & Samyang RF Mount - DO NOT UPDATE Past firmware 1.8.1
3

PSA for Samyang RF mount Users:

If you're running a Canon R6 and were one of us lucky ones to have nabbed a copy of the Samyang 85mm f1.4 lenses and enabled IBIS while they were available, DO NOT UPDATE past firmware 1.8.1 if you want to continue using your lens.

I was several updates behind and decided to try firmware 1.8.2 today and then the latest 1.8.3, but both removed the autofocus capability of the lens completely. I had to revert back to 1.8.1

Thankfully, it worked, and I'm now simply staying put at 1.8.1.
