Samyang/Rokinon AF 14mm F2.8 RF on R5/R6

Does anyone have this combination? If so, how well would you say the IBIS works?

I am familiar with the behavior of EF lenses without their own IS, and the IBIS works fine for them.

I suppose I am faintly hoping that, since this is an RF mount third party lens with all 12 electrical connections present and reverse engineered enough to have functional AF, maybe the R5/R6 IBIS is even better than fine, like it is on the first party RF 50 F/1.8, which also does not have its own IS.

The product photo shows 12 contacts.  But there is nothing mentioning any RF unique feature, such as high speed AF, coordinated IS, lens correction data, etc.  Perhaps the extra contacts are there only for possible future upgrade.  But I won't bet on that.

I get the EF mount version (completely different optics) using a Viltrox control ring adaptor, which provides the 3rd dial for use with my R.  I have not tried it on my R5 yet.

I got this lens a few weeks ago and did the firmware update to the latest and I can report the image stabilisation (IBIS) works very well just like a Canon lens with IS.

It also has lens correction data and is recognised by my R5 as a Samyang 14mm AF lens.

Will post a pic later tonight.

Works very well.
