Why? Or it was not meant to be?
I don't see a red dot on the EF 17 - 55, and there is no white square on the Mark III either.

If so, there goes my plan for not buying another lens.
Thanks.

I'm gonna go ahead and assume you're being serious...EF-S lenses are not compatible with FF cameras, only EF mounts are. EF-S are specifically designed for crop sensor cameras. EF lenses will fit both FF and Crop.

I am sorry but none of the EFS lenses fit full frame canon cameras..... only EF.....

Duh... seriously. See my signature? :oops::p
Serve me right for not studying the FF carefully before plunging deep in my pocket.

Anyway, I have a few EF in my bag to play with.
I do love the 17 - 55 though. I'll look up which other lens is comparable to this one.

Thanks, dear wise ones. :lol:

You'll have to use one of your other 3 lenses on it.

find someone willing to trade it for a 24-105mm....or sell it and buy a 24-105mm

but yes, normally research is a good idea...it's like checking to see how deep the water is before diving head first...you dove into 6" of water :)

One of the "downsides" to switching to FF that they often don't tell you about...

Though there are still quite a few to choose among, lens selection for FF is a bit more limited... And FF compatible lenses tend to be larger, heavier and more expensive.

Read all those books in your signature and I bet you'll be able to answer your own question. :)

I'm going to go ahead and assume you aren't serious...especially if your next question is why doesn't the flash pop up on your 5DIII when you have it on green-box mode.... :)

There is no 'comparable'...it would need to be 27-88mm or thereabouts, f/2.8 with IS

Closest equivalent is

  • Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC
  • Tamron 28-75mm f/2.8 SP... no VC (IS), though
  • Canon 24-70mm f/2.8... no IS
  • Sigma 24-70mm f/2.8 IF EX DG ...no IS
  • Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX DG ...no IS
  • Canon 24-105mm f/4 IS...slow max aperture
  • Tokina AF 28-70mm f/2.8 AT-X Pro SV ...no IS
