Lenses for the Canon EOS 20D Digital Camera:

While researching which lenses to purchase for my new Canon EOS 20D camera, I could not find a simple side-by-side listing of what lenses from different manufactures were available. I put the following list together for my own use and am posting it in case someone might find it a useful starting point for their own lens hunt.

Google searches for lenses compatible with the Canon 20D only turned up four brands. I'm sure there are others out there. The lens information for this list was obtained directly from each company, or in the case of Tokina from thkphoto.com. This list is not intended to be comprehensive.

For those of you with a perverse sense of irony, you can get adapters that allow Nikon's Nikkor lenses to be mounted on the Canon 20D. For more information I refer you to Mr. Ken Rockwell at: http://www.kenrockwell.com/tech/nikcan.htm.

Additional information about Canon Lenses is available from Bob Atkins.
