Yes they will work but not as well as the newer lenses which have better AF mechanisms & image quality. About the only Canon DSLR's they won't fir are the M series cameras. Look for a spec saying EF or EF-S mount lenses are used. Your lenses are EF mount.

Any EF lens will work on any Canon DSLR. Lenses have improved, so you might *want* to upgrade your lenses, but they will work.

Hi friends, Whether Canon EF mount lens 75-300mm, dia 58mm can be used with Canon DSLR camera 70D. How is Canon 70D??

Yes, the EF 75-300 can be used with the 70D.

 

The 70D is a great general use camera.

Thanks for your valuable info. Whether the EF 75-300mm lens will have any degradation in image quality when used with 70D. Whether any magnification of image will take place while using with DSRs.

The 70D has more image quality than the EF 75-300mm is capable of producing. So the EF 75-300mm will be what limits your image quality, not the camera. 

 

On the 70D the EF 70-300mm will have an equivalent field of view as a 112-480mm lens on a film SLR.

 

The EF-S 55-250mm IS STM is a low cost very high image quality lens for use with the 70D. It has an equivalent field of view as a 88-400mm lens on a film SLR.

"The 70D has more image quality than the EF 75-300mm is capable of producing."

 

This brings up a good point.  It is always the lens.  The lens is where it at.  If you ever need to update something it is virtually always the lens that will make the most difference.

IMHO, I would not use a Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6 III on a 70D. Although this is one of Canon's favorite and most used lenses by Rebel owners.  There has been three models of the Canon EF 75-300mm f/4-5.6.  The last one, version III, is the best.  However, that is a question that only you  can make.  It may do exactly as you want.
