Designed for portable and lightweight mirrorless bodies, these lenses follow suit and are generally easier to carry about than DSLR equivalents. The Micro Four Thirds mount, shared by Olympus and Panasonic, is the most-established lens range for compact system cameras. Canon’s EOS M series has its own EF-M mount, but can take EOS DSLR lenses with a special adapter.
In addition to own-brand optics, there are a number of third-party lenses from companies such as Sigma and Tamron, which give users a little more choice. Just as with DSLRs, there’s a vast range of lenses available, from wide-angles, primes and telephotos.
