Will this lens work with the canon t7? Also, what is the difference between I,II, and III?
Asked by: April
I bought this lens for a Canon 6D, which is a full-frame camera. It is an F-2.8, so it does really well even in low light. The EF lens are designed for use with full-frame cameras. However, the specs for this lens says "Versatile telephoto zoom is designed for full-frame Canon EF-mount DSLRs, however can also be used with APS-C models where it provides a 112-320mm equivalent focal length range." So it should work with a T7, which is an APS, NOT afull frame. Not sure about the I, II and III. My guess is the are just newer models with the higher numbers.

It is compatible with a Metabones adapter, Metabones T Smart Adapter Mark IV for Canon EF or Canon EF-S Mount Lens to Sony E-Mount Camera B&H # MEEFEBT4 MFR # MB_EF-E-BT4. Metabones has not tested it that lens but the community has and they say it does work with the Canon EF 70-200mm f/2.8L USM (non-IS)
