Please note: the original post mentioned the EOS R6 Mark II, that was obviously nonsense…
After Sigma, also Tamron issued a product advisory for some of their lenses having problems with live view mode on the Canon EOS 5Ds and EOS 5Ds R.
Tamron press release:
A notice regarding compatibility issues with the EOS 5Ds and the EOS 5DsR, and availability of firmware update service (JUNE 2015)
