Will any Canon lens fit any Canon camera?

No. The three primary types of Canon lens, and some commentary on compatibility, are below.

* Canon FD and FL lenses: These are all manual-focus lenses for manual-focus cameras. FL lenses will work on any FD camera (for example, the famous AE-1 and T70), but FD lenses will probably not work with FL cameras (try it yourself). These lenses will not work properly on EOS cameras, either (including modern digital SLRs); they will not be able to focus to infinity. You can get adapters of varying quality with optical elements that correct for the different flange-to-film distance. Most of these adapters are cheap, useless, and rob light and sharpness; Canon made one for their FD telephotos when the EOS system first came out, but these are hideously expensive. If you don't need to focus beyond a few feet, then you can get adapters without optics which will allow these to be used, with varying degrees of success, on EOS cameras. Some very brave people have physically modified FD lenses, too. You're on your own here.

* Canon EF lenses: These were designed for the EOS system, and will not work with FD or FL cameras. Nearly all of these are auto-focus lenses. Any genuine Canon EF (not EF-S -- see below!) lens should work with any Canon EOS camera -- both film and digital SLRs. * Canon EF-S lenses: These are lenses designed specially for Canon's digital SLRs with smaller sensors, such as the Rebel, Rebel XT, and friends. These will not work on 35mm film cameras, because they don't cast an image large enough to cover the whole frame. They'll also be pretty useless on full-frame digital SLRs like the 5D (which have sensors roughly the size of 35mm film). Interestingly, they don't work on the ancient D30 or D60 digital SLRs either, despite these cameras having a cropped (1.6x) sensor. These comments only apply to genuine Canon lenses. Non-camera-brand lenses may introduce compatibility issues of their own. For example, some Sigma zooms will work with EOS film cameras, the D30, and D60, but for some reason decline to work with modern EOS digital SLRs.

NO. The lenses are designed for a specific brand name camera. A lens for a Canon camera will only fit a Canon etc.


The Canon EF lens will only fit Canon SLR camera bodies, unfortunately.


The Canon AE1 lens will not fit a Canon digital. You can buy an adapter that will allow the lens to work in manual focus mode on the digital camera.

Vivitar makes lenses for several different camera mounts including Canon. A particular lens may fit or not depending on the mount.


I don't think they will fit any. The lens mount was changed right after the Canon T70. Someone told me they will fit a Nikon so I'm trying to find that out. (They don't fit Nikon cameras.) Canon T70 lenses only fit Canon SLR's (single lens reflex) made between 1964 to 1987. The T70 uses Canon FD mount lenses. FD lenses can only be focused manually. All of the exposure communication connections between the camera and lens are mechanical. An EF lens will not fit onto an FD body. In 1987, Canon introduced EOS cameras that use EF (electro-focus) lenses. All of the exposure and focusing communication connections between the camera and lens are electrical. An FD lens will not fit directly on to any EOS camera. The Rebel XSi camera is a Canon EOS digital camera that can use EF lenses or the smaller EF-S lenses made for APS-C DSLR's. Adaptors are available on a popular internet auction site that will connect an FD lens to an EOS body. The price in 2008 is just under $40, including shipping. Lens functions are manually adjustable only, and are not very convenient when used in this way.


A Nikon Lens will not fit on a Canon camera. Edit: All camera brands have their own bayonet, so they won't be able to take lenses from other brands, but if for example you wanted to put a Nikon lens on a Canon camera, there are adapters for that. There are also third-party lens makers (Sigma, Tamron, Tokina, ...), who make lenses for many camera brands.


Yes, the Canon EOS 400D has both EF and EF-S lens mounts. Therefore, the TS-E 90mm WILL fit on the camera because it has an EF lens mount.


No, or maybe. You need to look at the lens. If the lens is EF-S then it will not fit. If the lens is EF then it will fit. rebel can use all EF and EF-S lenses. 5d can only use EF lenes, becouse it's full frame body (camera)


no it can't cannon has a competetion with nikon they want you to buy only their products


Canon EF lenses that fit Canon EOS cameras will fit all Canon digital SLR bodies. Canon FD lenses that fit Canon SLR's made before 1987 will not fit any EOS or digital EOS camera body. It depends on which DSLR you have as to which lenses can be used.


It should fit most digital cameras with a normal size lens.


The Canon 50mm lens is used mainly by the Canon EOS line of Cameras, since they have an EF Mount which is designed to fit this range. They do also fit other Compact SLR cameras however due to the fact their mounting is similar to that used by most cameras.


Unfortunately, it will not. CANON and SONY have different lens mounting brackets.


Yes, if your camera has the detachable lens option (lens' are able to be removed from the base of the camera). All brands that are the same as your camera will fit.


No, Canon lenses on Canon; Nikor lenses on Nikon.


Short answer,"yes." The Canon EF 200mmm lens is designed to fit a "full-frame" Canon EOS camera - film or digital. It will also fit all Canon DSLR's that have the smaller APS-size sensor, including all of the Digital Rebels.


Yes, if you purchase the 'EOS' version of this lens (the one intended for Canon) it will fit just like any other 'EOS' lens would. I have the 500D and it fits fine, but a Google search will show others successfully using the Samyang 8mm fisheye with other Canons e.g. 450D.


The short answer is: "No" The long answer is: The T70 uses Canon FD mount lenses. FD lenses can only be focused manually. All of the exposure communication connections between the camera and lens are mechanical. An EF lens will not fit onto an FD body. In 1987, Canon introduced EOS cameras that use EF (electro-focus) lenses. All of the exposure and focusing communication connections between the camera and lens are electrical. An FD lens will not fit directly on to any EOS camera. The Rebel XSi camera is a Canon EOS digital camera that can use EF lenses or the smaller EF-S lenses made for APS-C DSLR's. Adaptors are available on a popular internet auction site that will connect an FD lens to an EOS body. The price in 2008 is just under $40, including shipping.

It entirely depends on the lens mount. Sigma manufactures lenses to fit all major brand camera bodies - 'Sigma 35mm" does not really say much about the lens, I'm sorry to say.


No, not without an adapter. There are adapters avalable that lets you mount FD-lenses on newer Canon EOS cameras with EF-mount


ED has nothing to do with the camera mount; it is a lens (glass) quality so yes, it will fit


Most lenses and mounts are proprietary so no Canon lens would fit a Pentax without some kind of adaptor.


No other major camera manufacturer currently makes a camera body that will accept Canon lenses. (From 1930 to 1960, Leica rangefinder cameras took screw-in lenses. During that time, several other camera manufacturers, including Canon, made rangefinders with the same screw mount, so all of their lenses were interchangable. This is the same lens mount that most screw-in enlarging lenses have.)


Canon EOS Rebel has EF, EF-S mount and is and EOS camera, Canon AE-1 has FD mount. Yes, there is and FD-EOS adapter.
