I do not see why not, it is no different tech then people eye tracking and all my EF lenses work with it on the Eos R

Not fully tested yet. The R bodies and RF lenses have 3 more pins for high speed transmission, whatever that means. We may never see a real difference between EF and RF lenses. I’m banking on there will be so I’m going for it.

A respected birder at Fred Miranda posted is waiting for Rob to submit his review on EF lenses with the R5 because of the big whites that won’t be out for a while.

Sorry Rob. Don’t mean to put pressure on you.

I was watching a B&H webcast yesterday, where their Canon Representative (Rudy?) put a strong emphasis on the Canon EOS R5 & 6 capability of the eye tracking AF as part of what he called Canon's "trifecta" approach to AF, where the AF algorithm had been designed to track the eye, head and body.

If the person turns their head (eye away from camera) the AF locks on the head and if the person is e.g. a sports person wearing an ice hockey helmet, or a fashion model wearing a wide brimmed hat, where their eye is obscured by the head gear, then the AF will default to the head to keep tracking and then re-acquire the eye should it become visible again.

Rudy stressed that the eye, head and body AF trifecta tracking capability was new to Canon as of the Digic X processor.

Cheers

Dennis

EDIT: If I remember correctly, the advanced AF eye tracking only operates in the more expanded Zone AF and full AF Zone modes and not the Spot AF mode, so it requires a larger AF area in order for it to track the subject. You also need to be in Servo and not single shot to track.

Per Rudy from the B&H Q&A video, yes they will work with EF glass as well as IBIS, but the IBIS just won't work as well as with RF glass

No Pressure. I did preorder so I will be happy to report back if it comes in. Had to say how many orders will be filled in these times. I really do not see an issue with them in respect how they work on the R now. The only real issue is even if they work really well no one will be able to test the AF speed difference seeing they do not have a large lens yet to compare.

I am considered an "owner" now that I have preordered, or do I need to have it in hand?

Eye af worked on the R with EF (and EFS) so I doubt Canon took a step backward here.

Wouldn't the eye af have more to do with the camera than the lens? Obviously you'd need fast glass to keep up with the focusing. Other than that it would be the af system in the camera?

Yes but Canon has restricted other things, reserving those for RF lenses, so I assume there is concern from others that eye AF might be another of these things.

I'll need proper reviews from independent reviewers not being paid by canon. But still an interesting video.

Yes that was one of the first videos shown on the official release date. There is a thread over on FM that has links to about 20+ different videos/review/previous that is quite interesting to go through.
