Modifying the Canon EF-S 18-55 *IS* lens for use on Canon 10D?
« on: April 16, 2009, 01:30:21 PM »

I've read the artical on modifying the Canon EF-S 18-55 lens for use on Canon 10D (http://www.bobatkins.com/photography/tutorials/efs-10d.html)

Does this work for the Canon EF-S 18-55 IS version also? Does anyone have any experience with this and are there things that are different compared to the non-IS version.

Any help is much appriciated!

I saw in the local market it's being cut to fit 10D.
Don't know the details about the process, but that cut-out works.
I'm convinced Bob have the exact answer on this.

Nope, I have no answer!

There's no reason why the IS should make much of a difference. If you can remove the rear part of the mount that interferes with the 10D body, I'm guessing it should work fine.

Since I no longer have a 10D, I'm not modifying lenses anymore!

oops...  Smiley

Yes I saw someone cut the rear part, I would think it's similar with non-IS version.
If their mounts are similar, it should need the same work to fit in 10D.

Just make sure that the extra stuff in the IS version did not cause the glass to protrude past the ring when you cut it.

Hello All, this is my 1st post here. I read Bob's article about converting the ef-s lens to fit my 10D, so I found one and tried it and it worked. I recently found the IS version of this lens and did the modification to it as well. The main difference is there is a tiny ribbon or printed circuit attached to the plastic lens mount. I cut mine about 1/16" higher on the IS lens because the printed circuit is attached just below where I cut. I should have taken photos, but I didnt. It works perfectly on my D10
