Newbie Lens Talk
In my infancy of researching DSLR's. Just came across a tidbit that has thrown my original thought process off track.

If I'm looking at a 1.6 FOVCF body, should I be looking at EF lenses or the EF-S lenses?

Either one will do.

The EF-S lenses will only work with Canon's APS-C bodies, while the EF lenses will work on all Canon bodies.

The same is true of Nikon's 'DX' lenses and Sony's 'DT' lenses.

Thank you..

Picked up two kindle books today on photography...

First one;Improve your photography, Jim Harmer
Second; understanding exposure, Bryan Peterson

Read the first one and learned more with every page... Just shows you just how of a newbie I am;-)

Got to start somewhere.... Eventually I may even get a camera.
