    I am looking at the 400D with a 1.6x FOVCF.
    Would it be accurate to say that if I do not buy a EF-S lens, and get a EF lens instead, I will not be getting the whole focal length of the lens? So if I bought a 28-135mm, I will not be getting 28 to 135mm, where if I bought a EF-S lens, I would be getting close to the actual rated focal length?

    Hopefully I make sense, the stuff I have read dosnt quite answer what I am wondering.

    No matter what lens you put on your body, there is a 1.6 magnification factor whether it be an EF-S lens or EF

    EF-S is just the mount type, it has nothing to do with the crop sensor.

    camera's like the rebel series (300/350/400) the 20d/30d all use the ef-s mount. You can use EF-S and EF mount lenses on those bodies.

    Now, with the 10d, 5d and 1d you cannot mount an EF-S lens to the body.

    It's already been said, but the magnification comes from the digital camera's sensor, not the lense. The downfall of using EF-S is if you ever decide to upgrade to a higher-end DSLR you won't be able to use your EF-S lenses. (Again, already said.)
