    I have been looking at this lens online and the website says it is to be used with Canon 20d or XT. I have a Canon 30. Is this lens compatible and how do I know if it is or not?

    All Canon EF lenses will work on all EOS cameras (including XT,XTi, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D). EF-S lenses however will only work on cameras with 1.6 crop factor (XT,XTi, 10D, 20D, 30D, 40D.. BUT NOT 5D or any 35mm EOS camera).

    And are the EF lenses made of better quality glass? Why are there two different types of models (EF an EF-S) price differnce. Is there a significant differance in picture quality. Thank you for your help btw :)

    EF is the designation for the mount itself. EF is for all EOS mount cameras. EF-S is the designation for lenses only for cropped digital sensors.
