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.

Go on the tab in the camera menu marked "C.Fn5" and set option "Release shutter without lens" to "[ON] Enable".

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.

EOS 1DX and 1D Mk IV, along with less and less other stuff.

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