EF and EF-S Mount – Canon 1DX/5D Mark III/6D/7D/650D/600D/550D
One could argue that the Canon EF mount is the ‘hottest’ mount of this decade.
Look at its scope – from the small BMCC sensor to APS-C sized sensors that resolve 700 vertical lines (DSLRs 1080p) and 1000 vertical lines (C300/C100 1080p), to the same sized sensors resolving 5K (Red Epic), to FF sensors resolving 700 vertical lines (DSLRs 1080p).
This ubiquity and exposure gives EF mount users the greatest options when it comes to adapters and lenses, not as much as m43 mounts, but close enough.
Obviously this also means my suggestions for this mount will be the most controversial.
Keep in mind, FF cameras cannot take EF-S lenses, only EF lenses; and APS-C sensors are more demanding in terms of resolution!

In the next part we’ll look at EF lenses for the BMCC and the Red and EOS Cinema cameras.
