Samyang will be the first non Canon manufacturer to build an autofocus lens for the Canon EOS R full frame mirrorless system. According to this the Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 RF will be the first third party AF mirrorless lens for Canon EOS R.
The 14mm f/2.8 prime lens is great for cityscapes, landscapes, interiors, architecture, and other photography types that require a wide focal length.
The current AF 14mm f/2.8 EF lens designed for full frame cameras that delivers a quiet, fast and accurate autofocus system. The Samyang AF 14mm f/2.8 RF will also come with a lens station for firmware updates.
