Difference between PAL & NTSC Lens?
Hi there
I am looking at a wide angle adapter on ebay.

I have spotted an original 3x canon lens.

It occured to me that is there a difference between the pal and ntsc lenses?

If this is based in the states, then i guess it is ntsc. I have a pal camera. I hope it will work!?!

i dont atcually think there is a differene. atcually i am 100% sure but i just want to cover my back. you do get Pal and NTSC cameras if thats what your talking about?

I am aware of the exsitence of Pal and NTSC cameras and their difference. However as the vertical lines in ntsc are less than pal, I wondered if the lenses where different for each version.

Lenses made for PAL versions and NTSC versions are the same, no need for separate versions.

Thank you Jeff
That clears that up!

I can also confirm that PAL version lenses will work on NTSC systems as I've been using the new XL2 NTSC body with my ol' 16x lens from my XL1s PAL.
