Hello everyone. I am a newbie for sure. I just got my R5 and the RF 70-200mm lens. I also bought the Laowa Probe lens with canon EF standard mount.
When I use the R5 and 70-200mm I can shoot and film no problem. When I put the ef-r mount to attach the Laowa, it does not allow me to shoor or film.
I put the Laowa on the 5Dmkii, no problem it records.
so what am I missing here? Is it the mount? How can I get my R5 and Laowa to work so I can film.
Tonight I upgraded the firmware 1.1.1 on the R5.

The probe lens appears to be fully manual with no electronic link to the camera so the camera thinks there isn't a lens attached. You will probably find somewhere in the R5 menu an option that you can set where that it will enable it to shoot without a lens.
This is just a guess, I don't have that camera or lens.

This is why I love forums. Thank you so much. It led me to another article regarding what you said and you are correct. I was able to enable shoot without lens function.
