"Are all Canon lenses interchangeable on all Canon DSL's?"

Thanks for asking if all Canon Lenses Fit on all Canon Cameras. I'm assuming your question is about Canon DSLR cameras, but you should also know that there are now lenses with different mounts for Canon mirrorless cameras too.

Canon EF and EF-S Lens mounts


EF LENSES. EF lenses will fit both the full frame Canon cameras as well as the smaller APS-C "crop" Canon cameras. In general, Canon EF lenses are bigger and more expensive.
EF-S LENSES. EF-S lenses will only fit the smaller Canon crop sensor DSLR cameras.
