Canon Mount Lens Hire Information

Canon lens hire

We stock a wide range of Canon mount lenses, not just from Canon themselves but also from Sigma and Tokina.

The range includes varying focal lengths from 8mm to 800mm.  We have split the lenses up into groups above to make selection easier.

If you are having trouble finding what you'd like, please do call us - we are always only too happy to help!

EF and EF-S explained

First introduced in 1987, the EF lens mount is the standard lens mount on the Canon EOS family of SLR film and digital cameras. EF stands for "Electro-Focus": automatic focusing on EF lenses is handled by a dedicated electric motor built into the lens. Mechanically, it is a bayonet-style mount, and all communication between camera and lens takes place through electrical contacts; there are no mechanical levers or plungers.

In 2003, Canon introduced the EF-S lens mount, a derivative of the EF mount that is strictly for digital EOS cameras with a 1.6x crop released after 2003. EF lenses can be mounted on EF-S bodies, albeit with cropped image, while EF-S lenses cannot be mounted on EF bodies (5D MkII).

Due to holidays there was some confusion over my order and I had to contact the centre to confirm my order then again to request a confirmation email. I was also contacted to be told that the item I had ordered had marks on the lens only to be contacted the next day to say the lens I had hired was not available but was giving me an earlier version of the lens. I put this down to staff shortages due to holidays at the time resulting in staff being moved into this department to cover. I have had no problems before so think of it as a one off.
We have to hold our hands up. We had two people off sick and yes, we did have temp cover. Really sorry about this - we've taken on another two people to ensure that it never happens again.
