This lens (brand new) worked perfectly for about 15 minutes on my R6 with RF adapter then auto focus and shutter released just quit. It appears the lens is no longer talking to the camera. No camera settings were changed from when it was working to when it wasn't. Any help?
Asked by: Neil
The Rokinon AF 85mm f/1.4 Lens for Canon RF is compatible with the Canon EOS R6 without an adapter. Try using the lens direct on the camera.

AF not working on C70 with .71x canon speedbooster adapter?
Asked by: John Daniel
If the autofocus on the Rokinon 85mm f/1.4 AF Lens for Canon EF is not working on the Canon EOS C70 Cinema Camera (RF Mount) when using the Canon Mount Adapter EF-EOS R 0.71x, you may need to update the firmware of your lens. You may purchase the Rokinon Lens Station for Canon EF, B&H # ROIOLSC, to update the lens' firmware to the most recent version from Rokinon.
