TS-E 17mm and Extender EF 1.4x not working on EOS R

Hi everyone. I have a problem trying to used mi Ts-e 17mm lens on a Canon R body (not RP). I been used this lens for a long time on a Canon 6D without any problems but in the Canon R I have the "f00" error message. I already tried the Canon R adaptor with seteable ring, the Canon adaptor without ring and a drop in filter Meike adaptor. In all the cases to verify that it is not a problem with the adapter, I have used other lenses (canon 50mm, 85mm, extender 1.4 and tokina 16-28) and they work well on both cameras but the extender 1.4 or the ts17mm doesn't work. Can anyone help me? Thanks!

"f00" or "f--" generally means that the camera can't communicate with the lens.  This is commonly seen when using mechanical lenses, and in that case would not be a problem; just set "release shutter without lens" in the menu.

However, I think your lens has electronic aperture control (I don't know that lens), so this should not be happening.  One thing would be to check the lens contacts, but you've taken care of that with all the adapters.  Another would be to check that the camera's firmware is up to date (looks like 1.8.0 is the latest for the R).  In general I would also check that the lens' firmware is up to date, but I don't see any firmware releases for that lens.

Otherwise, I can only suggest raising a support case with Canon.

Canon does NOT list compatibility with its teleconverters and TS-E lenses. They have electronic aperture control and are MF only.

Did you mean adapters?  The poster didn't mention teleconverters.   The only statement I can find on the EF-R adapter says "allows EF and EF-S mount lenses to be used on Canon EOS R cameras, maintaining the same levels of performance and functionality seen on EOS DSLRs", which doesn't mention specific lenses.

No. The OP said "but the extender 1.4 or the ts17mm doesn't work."

Sorry, I missed that.  I was concentrating on the user's actual question, which is "I have a problem trying to used mi Ts-e 17mm lens on a Canon R body", and "I already tried the Canon R adaptor with seteable ring, the Canon adaptor without ring and a drop in filter Meike adaptor".

I don't see any legitimate reason why the Ts-e 17mm lens should not work on a Canon R body, with the appropriate adapter.

It should work adapted but I think that the teleconverter is incompatible with ALL TS-E lens.

It doesn't work because it is not designed to work with that lens. IMHO, I can not see any reason why you would even want to do that.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV and less lenses then before!

This is the correct answer. The teleconverters are generally incompatible with lenses shorter than 200mm.

Hello everyone, first of all I appreciate your responses. I have been working with the Tilt shift 17mm lens for many years, I do architectural photography. Using a 1.4 extender is to turn that lens into almost a 24mm without losing tilt and shift capabilities. Even in terms of final image quality it is very similar to a 24 tilt shift. The problem is that when changing the body, switching to the R system (Canon R Body), I tried several mount adapters and none of them worked for me with either the 17mm TS or the Extender 1.4. Yes it worked with all the other lenses mentioned above. The curious fact is that before buying the last adapter, the store had an R8 to test and I brought my 17mm TS lens and it worked there, but when I returned home I tried it on the Canon R and it didn't work. I ask all this because I am considering selling the body R to buy something else, but I don't know if it is a problem with the Body or the lens. Thank you so much.
