    Default canon EF and canon AF

    Hi all,

    May I ask, is there any different between canon EF and canon AF mount ? I was puzzled that third party (refer to tamron), the website stated as canon AF rather than EF. Is the EF lens a proprietary name for canon only ? or is there any different ?

    Thanks for the time .

    Yes, EF mount is the name that Canon uses for their Auto-Focus lens mount. This is the mount used by all the Auto-Focus (film and digital) EOS SLRs.
    Hope that helps.

    Never heard of a Canon "AF" mount. In Canon's history, only got range finder, R, FL, (New) FD, and EF mounts...

    Probably it means Canon Autofocus lens, since there are some manual focus lenses in the EF mount (tilt and shift series).
