Bryan at TDP puts a little warning in all his reviews of 3rd party lenses.  This is why.

So, we've seen Tamron & Sigma today.

Hopefully not Tamron & Zeiss too...

I expect you meant "Hopefully not Tokina & Zeiss too..."   :)

Agreed... AF problems should not plague Zeiss (and one reason I don't buy Zeiss lenses).

For that very reason, I only own one 3rd party lens: the fabulous Sigma 8-16mm.   8)
AF (accuracy, or full Live View functionality) is not nearly so critical for such a slow, UWA lens.
On my 7D, AF performs just as I need it too... and should there be future compatibility issues, I can use manual focus &/or calculate hyperfocal distance where I need to.    ;)
I appreciate using my Canon DSLRs along with a host of lenses & many accessories to capture quality photos, and share with friends.

zeiss has focus confirm and no AF on any of its ZE lenses.

I find it odd also for someone to use a Tamron lens on a body as expensive as the 5Ds or 5Ds R.

Why would it be odd to use the sharpest best lens available on an expensive camera?

The Canon 16-35 f/2.8 II isn't even recommended by canon for its own cameras. Best and sharpest option is currently the Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 VC.

Also the firmware is already available isn't it? just have to get it updated and you are good to go. Which seems better than canon's service which I don't think have ever offered updated lens firmware have they?

They released a firmware update for the 40/2.8 STM, users can download and self-install (but a recent camera is required).  There was an update for MkII supertele lenses that had to go to Canon (they paid shipping). 

Since Canon doesn't need to reverse engineer their AF, making the need for updates less frequent.

apologies, that's what I get for posting when I'm tired.  I did mean Tokina, as I have a couple of them.

The AF-confirm lights on my 50mm ZE Planar are nice to have, but they required a heck of a lot of calibration before they were accurate.

The issue here is with Live View though, so viewfinder AF confirmation shouldn't be affected.
