Replacment motors for my EOS 1 system ultrasonic lenses

I have an 80-200 2.8L plus a 28-85 2.8L lens. Both are in perfect condition but both motors have failed. I have been told these are unavailable by the Canon New Zealand agents. Do you know where I might replace these so I can restore my system back to it's former glory.

Re: replacment motors for my EOS 1 system ultrasonic...

Canon does not make 80-200/2.8L nor 28-85/2.8L.
Not in the USA.
All those fast 1.0, 1.2, and 2.8L USM and with IS motors are not cheap.

I've just repaired the the 600mm/4.0L IS for a friend of mine. Parts were over $1,600.00.

Adding a lens to my camera

To be sure you can use the lens, buy a Canon EOS lens. The plastic ones, can be cheap. I bought my last lens 28 - 80 mm, couple of months ago, for 5 dollar. and a working EOS 500 was connected for the same price. (lens and camera are still in good working order) Don't try other brands, because even when you find a convertor, it could be the lens will only work on manual focus.

Lens mount fit

None directly. The T90 was the last Canon camera to use the older FD lenses. All newer Canon SLRs, film and digital, use the EF mount. However, by using an adapter such as, you can use the old lenses on any Canon digital SLR.

Will the lenses for a film camera (Canon EOS Rebel) fit a new digital body? Thanks.

Yes the Canon EOS lenses from film bodies will fit and work well on Canon digital bodies.
Depending on the Canon digital body you select the lens may have a 1.6 x factor. Meaning the focal length of the film lens will become a longer focal length. For an example Canon's 50mm f1.8 lens on the APS size digital sensor will translate to an 80mm equivalent. This is great for most people but, getting a good wide angle lens is a bit of a challenge, there has to be a tread off somewhere. There are Canon full frame cameras that this factor doesn't apply, for example a Canon 5D.

I have got an EOS Elan II E Film Camera (Cannon). I want to know Cannon has camera with a digital body which suits the lens attachment of EOS Elan II E.

Hi, all canon EOS digital cameras can take all EF lenses. An EF lens from 1989 will fit a Digital body from 2009.
The newer EF-S lenses will only work with the smaller APS-C size sensors on the cheaper consumer bodies.
Hope this answers your query, please take the time to rate!

My daughter is having trouble with using my old AE-1. She is trying to set the apperture manually but sees no change inside the lense. Can you tell me if there is something that she is not doing correctly...

The apeture is toward the back part of the lens. Shine a light down into the front of the lens and turn the apeture ring, you should see it change size.

Automatic aperture setting on canon FD lenses not working on AE-1

You have a case of AE(auto exposure) Unit faulty or getting bad. It suppose to register as it move within the AE unit according to the exposure calculation but somehow it is broken. Technician usualy replace the AE unit and takes care of the problem. It can also be rebuilt if new parts are not available. This requires complete disassembly and mirror box removal. The average cost of repair probably runs around $100. Yes, "A" mode is correct for most of the shots and it was a state of art electronic system and more computerized than you think. It has 3 IC chips in there for precessing and 1 chip for the exposure. All works together for good. -James
