Canon EF lens releases

The extensive line of high quality lenses has been at the core of Canon's DSLR system. EF-mount glass caters to the whole spectrum of photographers, from the casual shooter to the professional, and Canon has been developing its lens offerings and updating existing optics on a regular basis. Unlike some other camera manufacturers, the company does not publish a roadmap of upcoming lens releases, but based on industry news and rumors, we can expect a number of new DSLR lenses for the EF-mount over the coming months.

Canon
The Canon EOS system

So what is in the pipeline or rumored in terms of lens releases? Given that the EF lens catalog is rather complete, the focus of Canon has been on updating and modernizing existing lenses. Focusing motors that are fast and provide smooth and quiet AF for video applications, more effective optical image stabilization, and better lens coatings to reduce flare have thereby been at the forefront of the innovations. Some recently released optics have, however, also seen a fundamental re-design of their optical formulas or are, indeed, entirely new lenses. The listing below acts as a roadmap of recent and upcoming lens launches, and the subsequent table-listing makes it possible to compare the headline specifications of the new optics with existing lenses in the EF-lineup.

Canon EF-mount lenses

The table below provides a listing of Canon EF and EF-S lenses with their main specifications and prices at the time of their launch. The list covers Canon's current lens catalog, as well as discontinued optics. The listed prices are not adjusted for inflation, so that older lenses may appear relatively cheap in nominal terms and might have been subject to subsequent price increases.

 

The list contains both EF lenses, which can be used on both full frame and APS-C cameras, and EF-S lenses, which are especially designed for APS-C. The EF-S optics have a format factor of 1.6, so that a 50mm focal length will give the same angle of view as an 80mm lens on full frame. EF-S lenses do not cover the entire area of a full frame sensor and have rear elements that are closer to the camera's sensor to make more compact lens design possible. In order to prevent damage to the lens or the camera's mirror, EF-S lenses have a tab on the lens mount that prevents them from being mounted on full frame bodies. If you are not interested in information on EF-S lenses in the listing below, you can hide the respective rows by un-selecting the checkbox in the table header.

Further Reading

The EF-mount is well supported by third party lens producers also, and you can find an overview of the offers of Sigma and Tamron for Canon DSLR on separate pages. Moreover, if the existing catalog of native EF lenses does not contain what you are looking for, what about using some legacy lenses on your EOS via an adapter? Admittedly one loses autofocus and aperture coupling, but there are some truly excellent lenses that were originally designed for Leica-R or Contax cameras and work very well on a modern digital camera. Or if you are looking for a bargain, what about some legacy third party optics from Soligor, Tamron Adaptall or Vivitar?
