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).
