EOS R Lens Mount Adapter

[ Edited ]

I recently purchased the EOS R with the lens mount adapter.

Has any used a third party lens with the adapter, and, if so, were there any issues?

I am thinking of purchasing a Tokina 24-70 2.8 or Tamron 28-75 2.8 lens to use with my EOS R.

Many thanks.

I have 2 Canon EOS R6 and have used both with the adapter and 3rd party lenses: specifically:

Sigma 150-600 Contemporary and the Sigma 60-600 Sport lenses.  Both bodies and lenses performed flawlessly.

I have also used the adaptor with the following Canon EF mount lenses:

17-40L f/4,  24-105L f/4 MkI, 70-200L IS USM f/2.8 and f/4 (both MkII), EF 100-400L MkII, EF 70-300 (all 3 versions)

 

So I would suggest the risk of an issue is low, but in the end you need to try a specific lens out to be absolutely sure.
