Chapter 10. Working with Lenses > What Lenses Can You Use?

What Lenses Can You Use?

The previous section helped you sort out what lens you need to buy with your T3i (assuming you already didn’t own any Canon lenses). Now, you’re probably wondering what lenses can be added to your growing collection (trust me, it will grow). You need to know which lenses are suitable and, most importantly, which lenses are fully compatible with your T3i.

With the Canon T3i, the compatibility issue is a simple one: It accepts any lens with the EF or EF-S designation, with full availability of all autofocus, autoaperture, autoexposure, and image-stabilization features (if present). It’s comforting to know that any EF (for full-frame or cropped sensors) or EF-S (for cropped sensor cameras only) will work as designed with your camera. As I noted at the beginning of the chapter, that’s more than 40 million lenses!
