Lens \ Camera
EF, TS-E, MP-E
The easiest way to find out which lenses your camera will accept is to look at the lens mount index on the front of your EOS camera. Simply remove the lens from your camera by pressing the lens release button and twisting the lens anti-clockwise. Canon cameras have four mount types.
If you see a red line on the lens mount, your camera is an EOS APS-C R System or EOS Full-frame R System mirrorless.
If you see a red circle and a white square on the lens mount, your camera is an EOS APS-C DSLR.
If you see only a red circle on the lens mount, your camera is an EOS full-frame DSLR.
If you see a white circle on the lens mount, your camera is an EOS M series APS-C mirrorless.
Depending on your camera, different lens types can be used with or without a lens mount adapter.
