    Can others edit my Photos:
    Photos NOT OK to edit
    Yes, Actually they are the same. What it boils down to is Canon will not permit third party manufacturers to use the "EF" designation, that said many third party manufacturers simply put it as "Canon Autofocus Mount" and abrieviate it to AF. This differenciates it from the Canon FD mount which is primarily Manual Focus lenses.
