Thanks. I have some really nice lenses and upgrading for VIDEO mostly, all EF lenses so I think a 60D with an outboard mic will work pretty well. Thanks for the info.

One thing to watch out for. Depending on the age of your film lenses they may not have ultrasonic focusing motors, but rather the older arc-form drive or micromoter lenses, which are noisy and the video recording may pickup the focusing noise.

"Will my older Elan film camera lenses fit on a new DSLR body"
A better question would be "should" I use old film camera lenses on a new DSLR. I have probably tried more old lenses and tried to modifiy old lenses to DSLR's as much as anybody around here and found, maybe, is the correct answer.
You will just have to try them. I don't know which lenses you are talking about but some of them can be quite horribile on a DSLR.

Great point, the 2 lens I would wish to use for video on the 60D would be an EF 28-80 1:3.5-5.6 Ultrasonic and a Sigma 75-300 4.5~5.6 AF APO. Tripod mounted not expecting to use the zoom feature once set up. Video of live performances on a stage usually from the sound booth. I am planning on adding an external stereo mic a Rode Stereo Pro Mic. Would appreciate your thoughts. Thanks

Using an external mic may make it work for you. But I doubt seriously the quality will be anywhere near as good as even a DSLR STM kit lens. But who knows until you try them. How old is the Sigma?
