A notice regarding compatibility issues with the EOS 5Ds and the EOS 5DsR, and availability of firmware update service

Dear users and potential purchasers of Tamron interchangeable lenses for Canon.

Thank you for being a valued customer of Tamron products.
We have learned that the AF functions of the following interchangeable lenses for Canon do not function in Live View mode when used on the EOS 5Ds and EOS 5DsR which went on sale on June 18 in Japan.

We sincerely apologize to all users and potential purchasers for any inconvenience the issue may cause.

Firmware update service is already available as this is the same case when EOS Rebel T6s/EOS 760D (EOS 8000D) and the EOS Rebel T6i/ EOS 750D (EOS Kiss X8i) were released. Also, the Model A011 with the latest firmware for panning shot treatment is compatible and functions properly with these new cameras.

*Please see the below links for the previous firmware update service announcement regarding EOS Rebel T6s/EOS 760D (EOS 8000D) / EOS Rebel T6i/ EOS 750D (EOS Kiss X8i) and the firmware update service for SP 150-600mm F/5-6.3 Di VC USD (Model A011) for panning shot.
