Will this lens work on full frame cameras?

Will this lens work on full frame cameras?
Asked by: Zach
No, it will not. The Opteka 12mm f/2.8 Lens for Canon EF-M, B&H # OPTM1228C, is designed for use with the smaller Canon EF-M lens mount, and is not compatible for use with the larger Canon EF lens mount. If you are looking for an inexpensive full-frame 12mm lens for use on the Canon EF lens mount, the Samyang 12mm f/2.8 ED AS NCS Fisheye Lens for Canon EF Mount, B&H # SA12F28FFFLC, would work for your usage needs. I personally feel the best option would be the Venus Optics Laowa 12mm f/2.8 Zero-D Lens for Canon EF (Black), B&H # VE1228CEF, at the 12mm focal length.
