No, Canon EOS uses a different type connection for its lenses and thus will now work with the "FD" lenses from the AE-1

The Canon Rebel film bodies use the EF mount lenses. All modern Canon EOS cameras, including all digital EOS cameras will also accept EF mount lense. The EF and EF-S lenses are compatible with the Rebel series. However, the lenses that typically come with a Rebel (EF-S) are compatible only with Canon cameras that have a 1.6 crop factor. Cameras with the 1.3 or no crop feature will not accept the EF-S lenses. The lens mounts deeper than the mirror will tolerate.

The short answer is: "None" See the answer for the question: Are canon t70 and canon eos rebel xsi lense compatible? The Canon AE1 takes FD mount lenses. All Canon digital cameras take EF lenses. They are not compatible.

The Canon Rebel XTi digital camera can be found on the Amazon, Ebay, and Newegg website. There are also many Canon Rebel cameras found at Ritz Camera.

Can you us an Quantaray for canon AF with a Digital Canon Rebel Xsi?

All EF series lenses will work with the film Rebel or any other EOS film body. EF-S lenses are not compatible with film cameras or full-frame digitals.

The short answer is "Yes." The long answer is: The 35mm Canon Rebel is a Canon EOS camera. All EOS cameras, including the 35mm Rebel, use Canon EF (auto focus) lenses. They can also use independently made lenses with EOS type camera mounts. All Canon DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras can use all Canon EF (or independent manufacturer equivalent) lenses made for film or digital cameras. Most Canon DSLR's have an APS-C sensor that measures 22.2 x 14.8mm. (This is smaller than the 36 x 24mm image size on 35mm film.) In 2003, Canon introduced EF-S lenses that were optimized for the APS-C sensor size. The EF-S lenses will only fit on Canon 20D, 30D, 40D, and 50D cameras (as of 2008) and all Canon Digital Rebel cameras.

Nikon D60 is the best alternative for the Canon Rebel XSI.

Canon has different names around the world for their Rebel (Amateur/Consumer) line of cameras. In the US, the line is known as the Canon Rebel XSi. In Japan, it is alternatively named the Canon Kiss X2 while in Europe and around the world, it is known as the Canon 450D. Canon has done this for at least most of their Rebel cameras. The original Rebel is called the Kiss Digital; the XT is known as the 350D or Kiss Digital N; the XTi is the Kiss Digital X or 450D, the XSi is the 450D or the Kiss X2, and finally, the new XS is the 1000D or the Kiss F. However, the "***D" title (ex. 450D) is often used interchangeably with the "Rebel X**" title (ex. Rebel XSi), even in the US or Japan.

There are a lot of good websites out there that write reviews on different digital cameras including Canon. To name a few, one could try Cent, PC Mag and DP Review.

Cannon has been known to make some very good high quality cameras as a matter of fact the Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi is one of there superior cameras.

All Canon Rebels can use either Canon EF (or compatible) or Canon EF-S lenses. EF lenses can be used on any Canon EOS camera. EF-S lenses, introduced in 2003, are made specifically for Canon EOS cameras with APS-C size (22.2 x 14.8mm) sensor. They can be used only on Canon Rebel cameras and on the Canon 20D, 30D, 40D, and 50D cameras (as of 2008). No other manufactuer currently makes camera bodies that take EF lenses. (Several years ago, Kodak had a full-frame digital camera that took EF lenses. It was a camera that was OK in the studio, but inferior for general photographic use. It was discontinued shortly after introduction.)

the T70 uses an FD lense, which cannot be fitted onto the new range of canon digital SLR cameras which use EF and EF-1 lenses

User Avatar

Any Canon camera with the EF-S lens system will work. That includes but isn't limited to all of the rebels (XT, XtI, XS, XSI, and the new T1I). The only cameras that WON'T work with your Rebel XTI lenses are Canon 1Ds, Canon 1Ds Mark II, Canon 1Ds Mark III, Canon 5d, Canon 5D Mark II. Another other Canon digital camera will do the job. The reason that these won't work is because they are full-frame cameras, which need a larger surface area of the lens and will not accept the mount from the smaller EF-S lenses. These cameras are all professional cameras and cost a couple thousand each.

The Canon cameras that have the best reviews are the Canon EOS Rebel T3i and Canon PowerShot SX260 HS. They all vary in price as to what they include. They are great for beginners and experts.

The short answer is "Depends" The long answer is: From 1971 to 1987, Canon SLR bodies and lenses used the Canon FD mount. In 1987, Canon introuduced the EOS SLR system. All EOS cameras use Canon EF (auto focus) lenses. They can also use independently made lenses with EOS type camera mounts. Canon FD and EF lenses have completely different mounting connections and are not compatible with each other's camera bodies. All Canon DSLR (digital single lens reflex) cameras can use all Canon EF (or independent manufacturer equivalent) lenses made for film or digital cameras. Most Canon DSLR's have an APS-C sensor that measures 22.2 x 14.8mm. (This is smaller than the 36 x 24mm image size on 35mm film.) In 2003, Canon introduced EF-S lenses that were optimized for the APS-C sensor size. The EF-S lenses will only fit on Canon 20D, 30D, 40D, and 50D cameras (as of 2008) and all Canon Digital Rebel cameras.
