Hi Marc! Almost all EF lenses, including the two you listed will work on the Canon Digital SLRs. On the Digital SLR they will have 1.5x the magnification that they would have on a 35mm camera. Your 28-90 will be like a 42-135mm and the 75-300 would be like a 112-450mm. This is because the image sensor on the Digital SLR is smaller than a 35mm negative.

I have a canon fd 28mm 1 : 2.8 lens and I am trying to find a camera that works with it


The FD lenses were mainly for film cameras. I used this lens on a Canon AE1-P. If you have a modern digital EOS with an EF mount you can buy an adapter (FD to EF) so the FD lens can be used on the EOS

Hi- purchased the Extender EF 2X II; it seems fine with my fixed focus 300mm, but the auto-focus doesn't operate with my 70-200mm EF IS USM zoom, in any mode. Any suggestions? Thanks G


You haven't stated which body you have but the AF will not work with the extender if the effective lens aperture is too low (remember that a 2x extender doubles the focal length but halves the effective aperture).

Canon's own website states: "Autofocusing does not operate if the effective maximum aperture is greater than f/5.6 (greater than f/8 on the EOS 1V and EOS 3)."

I just purchased a Sigma 2.8 f=28mm for canon but I don't know if it will fit my Canon EOS 500 N (same as Rebel G) 35mm SLR film camera. Can you help with this question.


Canon EOS 500N has an EF lens mount, so all lenses with Canon EF mount will fit. All lenses with MF and EF-S won't fit. If you purchased Sigma 28-70mm f/2.8 EX, then it have EF mount and will fit EOS 500N.

Canon Extender EF 2x II


There are 2 Canon fittings, EF for all EOS cameras and EF-S for 'crop' cameras. The Canon extender does not fit crop cameras. Whichever make you look at, make sure it will fit the type of mount you have.
If you have not yet bought your lens of choice, Sigma are good and do their own extender compatible with their own lenses but not Canon's. This may be a good option for you

Ol filme camera lenes fit mycanon ef-s digital eos 1000D


Hello,

are your old film lenses FD or EF mounts ?
(Is the old film camera a Canon ?)

EF will fit EFS fine. My expeariance is with the EOS 3000 EF film camera (2002 -etc) and these work fine.

If you have Canon FD, there are some lens converters out there however I have not seen any yet which electrically connect and there is no AF. All Manual focus.

I have used Olympus OM mount adaptors with manual focus to mount older/different mount lenses with some success (As an example).

Best idea is to search ebay for your mount converters.

Compatible lenses


All Canon EOS cameras (including the film Rebels and the digital Rebels) can use the same EF lenses.

There are some Canon lenses named EF-S that will only work with recent models of Canon digital SLR cameras, but EF lenses will work with all Canon digital SLRs.
