Yes they do, DX and FX format. DX only crop, and FX is the full frame line.

I guess I can understand not knowing that an EF-S won't fit a full frame camera - to a point. The OP has been on the forum for 5 years, and has a 40D. I dunno, I would just think that at some point he would have read about the white dot / red dot, or something....
This thread is funny and sad at the same time.

More such threads will emerge in the coming days.

Already, this forum gets many postings from beginners and the inexperienced. With the approach of holiday gift-giving, we're certain to experience the annual rush of questions from newcomers and those who are too impatient to read instruction manuals.

It's time to don our virtual academic caps and prepare to patiently teach those who are overwhelmed by their new toys.

I understand that fully, however the OP has been on the forum, and using his 40D for 5 years. I just can't imagine in that period of time never running across Ef vs. EF-S...

Ahhh, yes grasshopper, but is that not what you ninja blackbelts are on this or any forum for. Not just to learn from the masters but also to teach those that are pure as the driven snow....Walk on the rice paper and leave no mark.

Yup.

This belongs here.
https://photography-on-the.net/forum/...d.php​?t=456878

Definitely a candidate IMO. Or the troll spray.


No, the forum gets legitimate questions like 'what is the difference between EF-s and EF', but not from people who joined in 2008.

Cut the guy some slack. We're all still learning. I, for one, am still having a heck of a time figuring out how to open the back of my 6D to load the damn film...:confused::o

EF=Full Frame
EFS=Crop bodies

I know everyone will come here and think they know everything when they start shooting, but no one will admit if they have done any mistake.
So take it easy, sell it and get an EF lens (i am sure there wouldn't be any issue selling this lens, it is gem itself).

Perhaps that should read :
EF = Full Frame & Crop Bodies
EF-S = Crop Bodies only

Also doesn't help when Canon decided to have 7D (Crop) and 5D (Full Frame)

I'm ashamed to say I haven't been able to find that either. :oops:

I did find this funny looking slot behind a little door on one end of the body. Maybe the film slides in there?

All this attention to 'equivalent DOF' in this thread!...does no one else shoot in low available light, and worry about 'light gathering ability at max aperture' along with freedom from worry about camera motion induced blur?! "Get the available light shot, shallow DOF be damned."

If you need f/2.8 zoom, there simply is nothing for FF which is truly equivalent to Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 IS on APS-C, except only one lens comes close...the Tamron 24-70mm f/2.8 VC

The FF do generally also perform at higher ISOs which would make up for the lost stop. That's why it comes to getting the same shot you really don't have any real gain in ISO on FF since the crop sensor needs to use a faster lens to get the same FOV and DOF.

So if the 5DIII is 1 stop better than the OP's previous camera one of the f4 24-XX lenses would be close direct replaced

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.

Why would you be buying an expensive hi-end DSLR like the 5D III and not have this very basic knowledge about Canon lenses? I would expect a true newbie to Canon gear not to know this, but you are way past that point. I'm not all that smart and I learned about it from this forum a mere two weeks after I got my first DSLR, well before I joined as a member. You're a Canon shooter for at least 5 years and still refer to yourself as a newbie with no skill. All very surprising.
