    Thank you so much for your rapid answer to my question. It was not what I wanted to hear but if all my questions were answered to please me, it would be a dull world !!! I was the Distruct Manager for Bell & Howell from 1967 to 1974. B & H was the Distributor of the Canon line of cameras during that time. I covered Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and Montana for them. I fell complely in love with the Canon line. The last Canon I introduced was the Canon F1 System. At that time this system was far and away better than, in my opinion, any other photographic sytem available. Anyhow, thanks again for your help. Oh, yes, I still use a Canon FT with a 55mm f1.2 lens for my Black and White pictures. At f1.4 the resolution is unbeleivable. Phil Chapple

The FT lens mount system (FL system) is not the same lens mount used on today's Canon EOS cameras (EF lens mount). The FT/FL system was used for a very short time in the 1960s, and was replaced by the FD lens mount system. Canon switched to the EOS/EF system in the late 1980s/early 1990s. So the lens will not fit on a Digital Rebel, and because it's 2 generations away from the lenses that do fit I don't think there was ever an adaptor made. Sorry!

It sounds like the lens isn't properly compatible with your camera which can be common on third party lenses. You can either set the lense and the camera to manual focus and focus the images by hand or sell the lens and find one that works in auto mode with your camera.

I just purchased a Canon EOS Rebel K2 35 MM film camera body. What lenses are compatible with this camera?


The Rebel K2 has the Canon EF mount. It is compatible with any EF lenses except the EF-S series. It will also work with third-party lenses that are compatible with the Canon EF series.

You can see the entire current line of Canon lenses (including the EF-S series) at

I was wondering if lenses from a Canon 35mm camera will work with this camera?


When choosing a lens for your Digital Rebel XT, look for EF or EF-S on the lens. Film lenses with the EF designation will work on your digital camera, but AF or older lenses will not fit. Trying to force them on may damage your camera.
When using a film lens on a digital camera, there will be a 1.6x conversion factor. This means that a 50mm lens will be closer to a 70mm lens in reality.

Canon Rebel T1i


I have the canon 70 -300 sitting right here beside me on my XTi, it also fits my XSi and all my EOS mount film bodies. one thing about canon EOS lenses and bodies: They fit and work together. Yes there are cheaper lenses, but I just answered another question on this website from somebody who has a 3rd party lens (and a high quality lens ta-boot) that will not work on his canon. This is typical of canon. They do not release all of their codes to 3rd party manufactures. Your friend just bought a premium camera, do not let him put a lesser lens on the camera, he will not be happy and the savings will not be that significant to make up the difference...

Canon EOS 300d will not close aperture on sigma lens


Hi
It is well known that some lenses made by Canon for the EOS film camera range do not work well with digital SLRs. Canon lenses work fine but it may be worth checking if the Sigma has a known problem with EOS digtal bodies.

I have a Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT with the original 18-55mm lense and a Quantarey 70-300mm lense. Have had all pieces for 3 years now and everything worked great until last night. Camera focuses and...


This means that the communication with the Quantarey lens is not the right one.

You can try in cleaning the lens contacts and the camera contacts with a pencil eraser or a white erase (flip down the camera so no particles get inside the mirror box).

If still you are having problems, then that means the Quantarey lens is defective, and either needs to be service to be repaired, or you will need to get another zoom lens.

Will a quantaray 28-105 1:3.8-5.4 Zoom lens Autofocus from a 35mm rebel ti fit on Canon EOS Digital Rebel 6.3 MP 300D?


The 35mm Rebel Ti and the Rebel 300D use the same lens mounting protocol. All Canon cameras designated 'EOS' use the autofocus EF lenses. If your Quantaray lens worked on the Rebel Ti, it will fit and should work on the Rebel 300D.
