As of June 2018, Samyang Optics has confirmed through internal testing that camera models work with the AF 85mm F1.4 EF lens.
However, some camera functions may not be fully operational.
For mirrorless cameras, all camera functions are made fully operational only if the official “EF=EOS M” Canon mount adapter is installed.
