Re: Digital Canon SLR Cameras

This should work as long as you have the correct converter ring for the camera.

I have a vivitar 62mm camera lens, is there any value to this lens? It was used on a Cannon AE-1 35mm camera.

That is one peculiar focal length- in fact, I think you have given us the filter thread size (62mm diameter fitting filter). So I can't comment on the lens as I am not sure what it is.

There are some Canon digital cameras that can take the lenses from the old SLR film camera range, so if this is an interesting lens, like a zoom or telephoto, it might be worth something. Most film camera stuff now is unwanted, unless it is collectable. A Vivitar lens with a Canon mount is not collectable. These were less expensive third party lenses, not the top whack Canon made ones.

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

Canon EOS 500n 35mm Film Camera, best cheap lens

In short, you won't. All Canon Digital SLR's use the same lens mounting system as your EOS 500n and new lenses are very expensive especially for those who have purchased full-frame models.

As a result, demand for the lenses which fit your camera is very high and so prices are high as well: it's just basic supply and demand economics. There were cheaply made kit lenses available with your camera when it was new, but like most kit lenses they weren't built to last, so most of the older ones are either non-functional or have been scrapped after owners upgraded. All that leaves are the higher quality, well built, lenses from the time your camera was made which are far cheaper than new lenses but still comparatively expensive.

If you want cheap lenses then you've picked the wrong system. Buy an older FD mount Canon SLR if you want to stay with Canon; you'll then find that lenses are so cheap that they're often offered for free on your local FreeCycle group. The same source is where I've got all of my manual focus (and some AF) SLR equipment over the last few years.

I'm planning to buy a DSLR but confused what to buy

You have named several excellent digital SLR cameras aimed at the top end of the amateur/semi professional market.
I have the Nikon D200 and have been very pleased with it.
As stated by JCDill, you must really decide what you want and can afford. The camera body you choose will commit you down one path or another. For example, if you choose Canon, only Canon or OEM (Other Equipment Manufacturers) such as Sigma lenses will fit your camera body. Canon have a good reputation for their auto-focus, while Nikon make lenses that are the envy of others.
If this is your first digital SLR then you might be best buying an entry level body with a multi-purpose zoom lens such as the Nikon D40. There is a lot to learn.
If you are converting from film SLR and already have a set of lenses, then the cameras you mentioned will probably be able to use your existing lenses (but this is less so with Canon than Nikon). I was ecstatic to disover that my old Nikon 500mm mirror lens works in manual mode (with metering displayed) on my Nikon D200 but would not work properly on my Nikon D70.
I hope this helps.

I have an cannon SLR AE1 that uses film. I would like to know if there is a a digatol SLR body that I can put my lineses on.

No, Canon EOS models use a different type connection for its lenses (EF series) and thus will now work with the "FD" lenses from the AE-1

Cannon lenses

All canon EF lenses (and compatibles e.g. Sigma EX) can be used with both analog and digital  EOS-bodies. Depending on the sensor size (usually smaller than a 35 mm negative) a crop-factor due to the smaller field of view must be considered.  Example: Canon EF 50mm/1.8 lens used on a digital EOS (40D, crop factor 1.6) equals a 80mm lens (50mm x 1.6) compared to analog cameras using 35mm film. Some digital EOS-models can also use EF-S lens-series.

How to use a manual zoom lens with Evolt 510

By manual zoom lens I am assuming you mean a film camera lens. If it is one of our OM 1 or 2 lenses they can be used on our Olympus digital SLR camera but you will need to purchase an MF-OM1 converter to be able to adapt those lenses to fit on our digital SLR camera. Then you will only be able to shoot using those lens in manual focus mode. Auto focus mode will not be available.

Automatic focus

I still don't have a digital SLR camera, but on the old Cannon film SLRs, the focusing motor is within the lense itself. The extender should have contacts to transmit the signals from the body to the lense. Visually inspect the extender, otherwise you'll be forced to go manual.
