Help, EOS R with Samyang 14mm f2.8 shutter won't fire

Hi, 

 

I'm feeling really stupid, and don't seem to be able to get my nice new EOS R to work with my samyang 14mm

 

I've got the camera set to manual focus, but can't get the shutter to work

Your camera needs to be in either AV or M mode to use this lens.

Have a go at it in the camera menus, as suggested above.  You just simply need to enable the camera to shoot without a lens.

"...to get my nice new EOS R to work with my samyang 14mm"

 

It's a Canon camera, probably best to use Canon lenses. Remember not being a Canon lens the camera doesn't know it is there.

Switch “Release Shutter Without Lens” to ON works. Thanks!

What shooting mode are you using?  Custom shooting modes can be enabled to reset any settings changes you may make.

Just as I suspected.  You are shooting in a custom shooting mode.  That's the problem, then.  Check the settings for your custom modes.  The settings are being reset back to the C3 defaults as soon as the [meterIing] timer expires.
