None of the above.

The Powershot A590 has a fixed (non removable) lens. The lens on the A590 is a 5.3-23.2mm f/2.6-5.5 lens that gives you the same angle of view (a.k.a., 35mm equivalent) that you'd have using a 35-140mm lens on a 35mm camera. Because the sensor in the A590 is very small compared to a DSLR model, you get more apparent magnification using a shorter focal length lens with one, and the lens is designed specifically for that camera's smaller sensor. Also, because of the smaller sensor, a model like the A590, Depth of Field will be much greater than you'd have with a DSLR model using a much larger sensor. So, don't expect to blur the background with a larger subject with a point and shoot type camera like the A590.

All of the lens models you listed are designed for use with Canon dSLR models with much larger sensors (not a point and shoot model like the A590). The A590 has a built in lens, and is not designed to use the lenses you mentioned in your last post (those lenses are for dSLR models with interchangeable lens designs, *not* for a model like the A590).

IOW, don't buy an A590 if you want a camera with interchangeable lenses. It's not designed for that purpose. Look at DSLR models (Canon EOS models) instead if you want to use those types of lenses.

No. Those are not designed for the lens on the A590.

You're trying to compare *much* larger designs for a dSLR model to a very tiny lens on a point and shoot camera model (the A590).

Those two camera types are very different with very different lens designs (the lens on the A590 is *very* small compared to the lenses used on DSLR models, with the A590 using a very tiny imaging sensor in comparison, needing a very small lens for the same angle of view range compared to the much larger interchangeable lenses used on the Canon EOS series DSLR camera models).

There is no comparison, as the entry level DSLR models have sensors that are *dramatically* larger than the tiny sensors found in models like the A590, needing lenses that are much larger, too.
