Lens (and Flash) compatability

    Tim Coleman's piece in this weeks' AP muddies the waters around the often asked question of lens compatability. Under the above title he states that 'All Canon DSLR models include built-in lens motors'. I'm sure he didn't mean to say that unless for some reason, after all this time, I can't find the motor on my Canon DSLR body.

    Yeah, I noticed that, too, and also struggle to find an AF motor in any of my (numerous) EOS bodies. OTOH, all my EF lenses appear to have a motor... :)

    Thanks for your feedback.

    You are right, this is an error in the article. Benchista you right say that it is all Canon EF and EF-S lenses that have a built-in motor, not the camera bodies. Neither body has a built-in motor, meaning therefore that the 1100D has better lens compatibility because not all Nikon AF lenses feature a built-in motor. There was the unfortunate scenario that I was off work at the time the article was being finalised to print. Had all the parties been in the office at that time, I'm sure the error would not have been made.
