Canon Lens Filter Size & Lens Hood Charts

If you’re looking to get a polarizer, UV, or ND filter for your lens, you’ll need to know the lens diameter/filter size. Here’s a lens filter size chart for Canon lenses.

Here are the lens diameters and corresponding filter sizes for common Canon lenses.

My focus here is on lenses that accept screw-in filters on the front. Some lenses, such as very wide-angle or fisheye lenses, don’t have a filter thread on the front and can’t accept this style of filter. And some very long telephoto lenses use a system of drop-in filters at the rear of the lens. There are also, of course, filter holder systems, but that’s a different kettle of fish.

Some focal lengths have multiple lens models, so it’s important to match the other parts of the name. For example, Canon has a couple of versions of the 16-35mm focal length, and each takes filters of a different diameter.

This is an ongoing list and clearly doesn’t cover every lens Canon has ever made. I’m starting with their current range and adding older lenses to it as the opportunity arises. And I haven’t included the more specialized Cinema and Broadcast series lenses here. Please feel free to send through any additions, requests, or corrections.

If you don’t see your lens listed here and want to find out the filter size, it’s often marked on the lens itself. For a more detailed guide, see my post on finding the lens diameter.

Canon RF Mount Lens Filter Size & Lens Hood Chart

Canon RF mount lenses are designed specifically for EOS R series mirrorless cameras. They’re designed to be lighter and smaller to more appropriately pair with the smaller form factor of the R series mirrorless cameras, and the lenses also feature a control ring that can be customized.

Things Worth Knowing

Many lenses come with a dedicated lens hood included. If you need a replacement or a spare, in most cases, the manufacturer makes it available as an accessory.

The official lens hoods tend to have a large markup, ending up much more expensive than they should be for what they are. In some rare cases, it can get out of hand with lens hoods costing hundreds or even over a thousand dollars (yes, really).

The good news, though, is that you can often find aftermarket alternatives that are significantly less expensive. They often work just as well. They’re usually listed under the same model number as the original.

And in some cases, a generic non-dedicated lens hood might also work, but that usually requires some trial and error to check for lens vignetting and effectiveness on that specific lens.

Canon Lens Codes

Like most manufacturers, Canon uses a number of codes and numbers in naming their lenses. I’ve posted a more detailed and comprehensive explanation of Canon lens codes separately, but here are some of the most common ones that you might come across.

  • RF – designed for Canon’s R-series mirrorless cameras.
  • EF – designed for all of Canon’s EOS cameras, including full-frame digital, APS-C digital, and 35mm film. The EF stands for electro-focus. It was introduced back in 1987.
  • EF-S – designed specifically for EOS cameras with APS-C cameras. In some cameras, putting an EF-S lens on a full-frame or film EOS camera will damage the camera’s mirror.
  • EF-M – designed for Canon’s M-series compact mirrorless cameras. They cannot be used on other EF-mount cameras.
  • FD – This was Canon’s old manual-focus lens mount. It was replaced by the EOS EF mount.
  • IS – Stands for Image Stabilizer, which is optical image stabilization in the lens (as distinct for in-camera stabilization).
  • L – Stands for Luxury. It designates Canon’s highest-grade lenses designed for pro use. Identifiable with a red ring.
  • USM – Stands for UltraSonic Motor, which is Canon’s main (and best) focusing motor. Fast and quiet and allows for full-time manual override.
  • Micro USM – This is a variation of USM that’s used on some of the smaller and lighter lenses (because it’s a smaller motor).
  • AFD – Stands for Arc-Form Drive, a predecessor to USM.
  • SSC – Stands for Super Spectral Coating. Since most modern lenses have some form of optical coating to reduce glare, reflections, and improve contrast, this code has been dropped from most recent lenses.
  • STM – Stands for Stepper Motor and is designed for cine lenses and lenses designed for video use to keep autofocus smoother and noise-free when recording.
