C100 mkII Face AF

Hello! Could I use my Canon STM 24mm and 40mm for Face AF? I have 1.0.5 firmware but still it not working. What problem with it? Why must I use only zoom lenses?


Thank you.

Re: C100 mkII Face AF

Hello virmagnavi, 

Those two lenses will not enable face detection AF within the EOS C100 Mark II.  Technical design specifications are at the behest of Canon engineers and are not decided at the technical support level.  We are however sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause you.

Lenses that support face detection AF:

- EF 24-105mm f/3.5-5.6 IS STM

- EF-S 55-250mm F4-5.6 IS STM

- EF-S 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM

- EF-S 18-55mm F3.5-5.6 IS STM

- EF-S 10-18mm F4.5-5.6 IS STM

Re: C100 mkII Face AF

Are there any third party lenses that work with the face af? specifically, sigma EF-S 17-70, tokina EF-S 11-17?

Also, do the prime EF-S canon lenses (50mm 1.8 & 24mm 2.8)?

thank you!
