Reason for Lens Size Differences?

Hi,

I'm interested in purchasing a 90d DSLR, and have just noticed that in some of the listing pictures on various sites the lens mounted on the camera is a 58mm and in other listings it's a 67mm. I always thought the 90d took a 67mm lens; clearly I was wrong. However I also noticed that the listings with 58mm lenses are less expensive than cameras with 67mm. Could someone explain why the difference?

In advance, thanks for any info.

Those values are the size of the front filter threads on the lens.  i.e. what is the size of screw-on filters that you'd need to work with the lens.

Your camera can work with any EF or EF-S lens.  The actual filter size across that wide range of lenses will be amongst many different values.

When looking at filters, larger-sized filters will be more expensive in general.

I believe these listings you are speaking about is showing images of 90D cameras with lenses attached?  Typically in such images you end up seeing the front of the lens which includes the filter size value.

As I and others have already stated, that’s not anything to do with the mount.
