Samyang has become the first third-party manufacturer to produce an autofocus lens for the Canon EOS R system, with the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 RF. The lens will also be available as the Rokinon 14mm F2.8 AF Canon RF in North America.

It will also be the widest autofocus lens available for the RF mount, as the Samyang AF 14mm F2.8 RF is a millimeter wider than Canon's wide-angle 15-35mm L-series lens. This makes it both the widest AF lens and the widest AF prime lens for the EOS R and EOS RP, as well as the first not made made by Canon.
