What is the difference betwixt Canon EOS, Canon AE and Canon 1000 lenses?

Hello,

What is the deviation betwixt Canon Eos, Canon AE and Catechism M lenses and how do I know that a Canon photographic camera is compatible with them?

I’ve read the wikipedia but I’m still confused.

Are Canon AE lenses uniform merely with old Canons and Canon Thousand lenses only with Canon’s mirrorless cameras?

Thanks!

That’s basically correct.

By “Canon AE” I assume yous actually mean “Canon FD” that were used on a number of sometime Canon manual-focus SLRs including the AE-one, AT-1, AV-1, A-1, F1, etc.

Canon FD lenses are designed for a mount that’s closer to the imaging plane (moving-picture show or sensor) than whatsoever current DSLR’s mount, so they aren’t readily usable on whatever DSLR. The lens mounts on mirrorless cameras are much closer to the sensor, and then it’south straightforward to use an adapter on those cameras to requite manual focus and transmission aperture with an FD lens.

Past “Canon M” I presume y’all mean “EF-M”. Those are the lenses for Canon’s EOS Thou series mirrorless cameras. And yes, they’re simply usable on EOS Chiliad cameras.

Are Canon AE lenses compatible only with former Canons and Canon M lenses just with Canon’southward mirrorless cameras?

Thanks!

yep

but if you have a Canon mirrorless then all Canon lenses work fine (with adapter)

Catechism AE was an SLR camera system that used the FD lens mountain. Unless you have i of these really quondam film cameras, don’t use these. They are actually not compatible with anything today, only you could utilise 1 of these on a Canon mirrorless camera if yous had an adapter.  You cannot use these on a Canon DSLR at all.

This old organisation was replaced in 1987 by the Canon EoS (SLR) camera organisation, that uses the EF lens mount. This is a completely new and different mount–and this is the same organisation that Catechism
DSLR’s
apply today.

In that location are 2 types of EF lenses:

  1. EF lenses, designed for cameras that have a “full frame” sensor
  2. EF-S lenses, designed for cameras that take an “APS-C” sensor

Y’all can also use any EF lens on an APS-C camera just fine.If you have a Canon DSLR, you need these EF lenses.

Canon recently made some other camera system & mount: EF-M. This is a mirrorless system, non a DSLR. These lenses only work with the mirrorless system (like the Canon M3 or M5). If you purchase an adapter, you can use the DSLR (EF & EF-Southward) lenses on these mirrorless cameras; but y’all cannot use these EF-Yard lenses on a DSLR at all.

Hi

You list iii unlike things

The Canon EOS group of bodies both picture show and digital starting time introduced in 1986, The Canon AE (really the AE-one) which is a specific Catechism film camera produced from 1976 to 1984 and the Canon EOS M serial of digital bodies start introduced in 2012.

They have unlike types of lens mounts:-

EF (Electro Focus) lenses are suitable for film, full frame and APS-C digital bodies.

EF-S (Electro Focus-Small-scale image circle) lenses only suitable for APS-C digital bodies.

EF-One thousand (Electro Focus-Mirrorless) lenses only suitable for the APS-C mirrorless bodies such as the EOS M1,2,3,5 and 6 and EOS M10.

FD (and FL an earlier mount) lenses which are suitable for the older Catechism motion picture cameras such as the AE-1.

EF and EF-S lenses can exist used on EOS M series bodies with a simple adaptor.

EF-South lenses cannot be used on full frame digital bodies and picture cameras as they don’t project a large enough paradigm circle and some beetle beyond the lens mount and into the mirror box where they would snag the full frame mirror every bit it flipped upwardly.

EF-Chiliad lenses cannot exist used on SLR style bodies as they are designed to focus on a sensor which is much closer to the rear of the lens.

FD (and FL) tin can exist used on EOS M bodies with a simple adaptor however they will operate in a fully manual mode i.e. the photographer must manually focus and adjust the aperture earlier taking the image.

Promise this helps
