So here's something I've been wondering about. Are there any combinations that won't physically fit? I happened to be sitting next to a guy this weekend who had a 5dm2 and either a 50 1.2l or an 85 1.2l. The lens was huge and it looked like there was no way that it could fit on my little t1i. Is it possible?


They all fit on every body. Sometimes only by a hair, but it fits.

EF mounts are identical and will fit any EOS digital camera.

The mounts are identical, but not the prism and grip clearance. Some lenses don't leave much room on either for the smaller bodies, so I can see how someone would ask.

I am in similar situation to OP - I have Rebel XS, and I love it, and recently bought some decent glass (Tamron 17-50mm, and Canon 135mm F2L). There is only one potential issue you have to be aware of: these fast lenses are super-sensitive to mis-calibrations of the camera's and / or lenses AF systems; with more expensive cameras, you can calibrate all this yourself (AF micro-adjust feature), but Rebel XS cannot do that. I discovered my both expensive lenses are either front or back-focusing with the camera. If this is the case, you could either live with it (use slow Live View focusing, or MF), or send the camera and the lesnes for calibration (as I did).

So chances are the 4.0L will be 'too good' for my rebel xs? And I'll have to send it in to be calibrated?

For years (film years) I would put a $2K lens on a used $100. body and sell lots and lots of pix. I still believe in glass. Now I shoot with $3K+ in bodies and $40K in glass.

I may have been an unlucky one with the camera or the lens needing calibration. You'll probably be just fine. Or get the lens now, and save some money on next generation better camera with the focus micro-adjust feature (say, current 60D, when it'll be much cheaper second-hand; or future 70D). That's what I'm doing: calibrating XS now will keep me afloat perhaps for one more year, and then I'll do the real upgrade (because 50D and 60D use a sensor of a comparable quality per pixel to my XS).

I was shooting for a 2.8 but have to settle for a 4.0. I need a tripod and some other gadgets with the rest of the $. I've never had an L lens before and the xs is my first dslr. Not sure what to expect. Hoping AF isnt an issue.

Do you have a site for your work?

I used my 70-200 f/2.8 IS on an XTi for two years before upgrading to a 1d iii. Just do whatever.

I was pretty certain that the mounts were compatible. It was the clearance that I was unsure of. The flash and associated housing on the T1i hang out so much further than the 5dm2 that it looked questionable.

Thanks all...

You don't want to get too heavy of a lens, though. Something like the 400 2.8L IS USM would be liable to bend and buckle the bayonet mount.

I'd like to see someone hold a 400/2.8 horizontal by just the camera grip anyway! :)
