Is EF and EF M mount the same?

The difference is in the flange focal distance, i.e. the distance between the mounting flange for the lens and the film/sensor. Canon’s EF-M has an 18mm flange focal distance, compared to 44mm for the EF and EF-S systems.

What lens mount does the Canon EOS M use?

EF-M lens mount
EOS M is Canon’s crop sensor (APS-C) mirrorless camera lineup which uses the EF-M lens mount.

Can I use my Canon EF lenses on mirrorless?

For existing Canon shooters using EF and EF-S lenses, the transition to full-frame mirrorless has been helped by the selection of EF-EOS R mount adapters available, which not only allow these lenses to work seamlessly on EOS R System cameras, but add functionality and even improve the optical performance of lenses.

Is Canon killing the M Series?

In short, no; it’s not doomed. And when we were briefed on this by Canon, we were quite shocked to hear it. But their explanation makes sense. In Canon’s mind, the EF-M cameras still sell very well.

Can I use EF-M lenses on EOS R?

All EF and EF-S lenses can be used by attaching the optional Mount Adapter EF-EOS R. The camera cannot be used with EF-M lenses.

Is EF M discontinued?

Canon hasn’t yet declared that the system has been discontinued, as no doubt there’s still new stock out there waiting to be sold, but take it from us, the Canon EOS M system has effectively been discontinued, by the introduction of new APS-C RF mount cameras.

Is Canon M series going away?

The release of two RF-mount cameras and an RF-S lens suggests not. Canon categorically denies that either the EOS or EOS M ranges will be discontinued and that — on face value — seems to make economic sense.

What does the D stand for in Canon cameras?

DSLR is the abbreviation for Digital Single Lens Reflex. Digital means that the camera operates with a fixed, digital sensor. Single-lens means the camera uses the same lens for framing, focusing, and taking the photograph.
