Canon 1000D EOS

[ Edited ]

Hello,

 

I have a Canon 1000D EOS and was wondering if you can still by zoom lenses to fit this camera.  I'm travelling to Africa and would like to use the camera, even though it is old.

Yes, any canon EF-S or EF lens will fit.

 

I recommend the Tamron or Sigma 150-600 mm lenses.

Any Canon EF or EF-S lens should work. Various third-party lenses will also work, but with somewhat less certainty.

If you are traveling that far, I would discourage bringing along a big, heavy 150-600mm super telephoto lens.  They are great lenses to use, but they are not great lenses for travel.  If you carry one, then plan using a protective hard case to carry it on an airplane, and checking it into luggage.

I think you will do just fine with the little brothers, the Sigma or Tamron 100-400mm lenses.  Or, you could even get by with the Canon EF-S 55-250mm STM lens.
