Re: Will my canon 80D lenses fit the canon 5D mark III?

Thank you very much!
Great idea, since 6D is cheaper than 5D mark III, but do 6D lenses fit 5d?

Yes, the EOS 6D is a "full frame" camera body, just like the EOS 5D Series of cameras. 

 

I would advise a general, all-purpose, "standard zoom" lens as your initial lens purchase.  Another first lens option is to purchase 35mm or 50mm prime.  Canon offers a couple of selections [cost] at each focal length, and zoom range.

Re: Will my canon 80D lenses fit the canon 5D mark III?

This may be an easy way to think about it.

 

1) There are two types of modern Canon DSLR lenses -- EF lenses and EF-S lenses.

 

2) EF-S lenses will only fit the crop sensor cameras such as the 50D, 60D, 70D and 80D. They will not fit a full frame camerra such as the 5DMkIII.

 

3) EF lenses will fit both the full frame cameras such as the 5DMkIII and the crop sensor cameras such as the 80D. 

 

4) So to be safe if you want to use a lens on both types of cameras (full frame and crop sensor) look only at EF lenses.

 

5) Crop sensor cameras such as the 80D have a 1.6x crop factor. Let's say you buy a Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens and put it on a full frame camera such as the 5DMkIII. You are effectively looking through a 50mm lens. Duh! But put that same 50mm lens on an 80D and because of the crop factor the effective focal length of that same 50mm lens is 50mm x 1.6 or 80mm meaning what you see the the equivalent of looking through a 80mm lens on a 5DMkIII. 

 

It all sounds more confusing than it actually is. Smiley Happy

Thank you very much!

I found the
EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM = $999 also in the same site
EF 24-105mm f4L IS USM = $624

Could I know why this huge difference?

It is hard to tell without seeing the actual listing but I'm betting it is all based on the condition of the lens. The $999 version may be in much better condition than the $624 version. If you read the descriptions carefully you will probably uncover why the difference.

Mst likely one of them is a "white box" version. Somebody has already explained that in some detail in one of the threads you started on this topic.

The Canon Refurbished Store is currently selling if for less than that, and it comes with a full one year warranty.

Could I know why is
EOS 6D Refurbished with EF 24-105mm f/4L IS Refurbished Lens Kit more expensive than if I bought them separately?
It is in Canon online store.
Thank you!
