I have only the Canon 18-55mm lens for my 1300D. I want to buy an EF 75-300mm lens. Will I be having a problem using those lenses?

    \$\begingroup\$ Yes, there will be a problem. The 75-300 is an unquestionably awful lens. Don't buy it - save up the small amount more and buy the 55-250. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ It doesn't really matter, but you also seem confused about which camera you own - the 1300D is the T6, not the T6i. The answer is the same though. \$\endgroup\$

  • \$\begingroup\$ As @PhilipKendall said, but also consider a secondhand 55-250 IS which I see are reasonably cheap - undoubtedly a much better lens even when compared optically to much more expensive lenses. \$\endgroup\$ Feb 15, 2018 at 17:21

    \$\begingroup\$ In the U.S. a used EF-S 55-250mm f/4-5.6 II (or the STM version) in excellent condition can be had for less than $100. There's no excuse for buying the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III instead. No one in their right mind would ever consider using that lens on a FF body if they later moved from APS-C to FF. (If you find a used copy of the EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 IS, that is a completely different optical formula that was the precursor of the current EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 which is on par with the 55-250mm or the non-L 70-300mm lenses.) \$\endgroup\$

Yes. Both the Canon 1300D and the Canon T6i have an EF-S camera mount. This means they are compatible with all EF-S and EF lenses.
