How the EOS family works together

The family of EOS DSLRs and EF and EF-S lenses are designed with compatibility in mind, so users can upgrade to a new EOS camera with confidence, knowing that their existing lenses will still fit and work as they should.

EOS R System lens compatibility

As well as its own lenses, the full-frame EOS R System can use EF and EF-S lenses via a choice of lens mount adapters.

EOS APS-C compatibility

DSLRs built around the standard sized APS-C sensor can use both EF-S and full-frame EF optics – giving photographers a huge choice. When using EF lenses, they give a more telephoto crop compared with the same lens on a full-frame EOS making them particularly suitable for sports and wildlife photography.
