 Post subject: LENS COMPATIBILITY
PostPosted: Thu Jul 17, 2008 7:04 am 
Noob question.

What do I look at, and how do I know if a certain lens that's made by another company is compatible with a certain camera? e.g. the Canon EOS 40d body and a Carl Zeiss lens.

The description of the lens will say which camera mount it is for. Most 3rd party lenses are available in different mounts to go with each type of camera mount.

It would seem (from the rumours) and the Zeiss website that Zeiss may be launching an EOS EF mount version of their lenses. (ZE mount).

Only a week to wait to find out if it's true.
