A mounting index is simply a marker that tells you where to align the lens with the camera body when connecting the two. Your camera has two of these markers, one red and one white, as shown in Figure 1-1.

Which marker you use to align your lens depends on the lens type:

• Canon EF-S lens: Align the lens mounting index with the white square on the camera body.

• Canon EF lens: Align the lens mounting index with the red dot instead.

If you buy a non-Canon lens, check the lens manual for help with this step.
