L = Canon "L" series lenses -- widely accepted that "L" stands for "Luxury" though I don't think I've ever actually found an explanation in Canon documentation.  I've also never seen any alternate explanation of what "L" stands for.


I believe Ken Rockwell says the L stands for Expensive as 'L'. ;-)


Conjecture Alert:

When EF is translated into Japanese, Google Translater makes it sound like “ EL “.
