Canon EOS 650 with EF 35-70 F/3.5-4.5

The Canon EOS 650 is a 35 mm single-lens reflex camera. It was introduced on 2 March 1987,[1] Canon's 50th anniversary,[2] and discontinued in February 1989.[3] It was the first camera in Canon's new EOS series, which was designed from scratch to support autofocus lenses. The EOS system features the new EF lens mount, which uses electrical signals to communicate between the camera and the lens.[4] Focusing and aperture control are performed by electric motors mounted in the lens body. The EF mount is still used on Canon SLRs, including digital models. Canon's previous FD mount lenses are incompatible with EOS bodies.
