    Default Question if I upgrade camera body can re-use lenses?

    example:
    currently using 600d
    50mm f1.8
    18-135 mm
    10-22 mm

    upgrade to 5d mark ii

    will these lens fit ?
    because 600d is cropped sensor and 5d is full frame not sure can work or not.

    Only the 50mm f1.8 can be used.

    Yup. Only the 50mm. Full frame cameras can only use EF lenses. Not EF-S lenses.

    Full frame body can only use full frame lenses.
    whereas a crop body..can use both full frame and crop lenses.
    EF are full frame lens. EF-S are the crop lens

    Not really sure if there is 1?.. but i guess you are looking for a UWA for FF..
    the famous 1 could be 16-35 for Canon.

    You're referring to the 10-22 EF-S lens right? FYI.. since its a crop lens..and Canon crop body as a 1.5 crop. That makes your 10-22 = 15-33 actually.

    On the side note.
    If there is 10mm for FF.. WOW. cant imagine.. Nikon has a 14-24 though. no 10mm yet..at least i haven't heard of 1.

    Canon APS-C is 1.6x crop.

    10-22 = 16-35 in 35mm terms.

    is actually x1.6 crop factor, your 10-22 is actually 16-35 on 600d

    if you upgrade to 5D II, the equivalent uwa lens would be the 16-35 f2.8L

    Actually i also dontknow how to explain to you professionally. But yes..because the 600D is not a FULL FRAME camera.. and since the sensor have a 1.6X crop. So yea what you see have to X1.6.. Which is why.. a UWA for crop body are usually 10-<35mm. Whereas UWA for FULL FRAME are usually 16-35. (numbers is always bigger..because they dont have to Multiply the crop). Another simple example..standard zoom for crop could be the kit lens 18-55. But standard zoom for Full Frame could be the 24-70. Hmm you get the idea? Sorry if i confuse you.

    Hi

    The crop factor for Canon's cropped sensor is actually 1.6x

    That means with any lens mounted, the focal length is effectively 1.6 times. E.g for your 10-22mm lens it's effect is that of a 16-35mm.

    What are your reasons for wanting to upgrade to the FF 5DMII?

    one of the reason is the weather sealing.

    EF lenses are compatible to FF sensors and EF-S lenses are only compatible to cropped sensors.

    The kit lens of 5DMII is the 24-105 L and not the 24-70L

    The red band is only on Canon's "L" range of lenses. They are the most expensive lenses for Canon and are supposed to be the highest quality.

    To be honest, it seems that there's quite a bit you still need to research on in terms of knowledge (at least gear wise).

    So maybe think twice before u go FF on the 5D.

    Weather sealing wise, the 7D is also pretty solid and it's cropped frame. So you can still hang on to your lenses.

    Hope it helps...

    5D MkII kit lens is not 24-70. It is a 24-105. The red band means its a L lens. L simply refer to the luxury lenses of Canon.


    Do you really need weather sealing? Or just feels like having it. Why do you think your 600D cant function well in snowing country. All if not MOST camera are tough and can endure the cold better than most of us (when we are already wearing so many layer of clothings) Next, Canon is a japanese brand and japan snows. Do you think they will sell something that wont last or function well in that conditions? You can also check the working temperature of the camera just FYI. People are worrying too much about weather sealing and shooting in winter condition. Really. The camera can be or is tougher than most of us.
