Compatibility

Hi, 

 

I own a canon 60D and the standard kit lens and the 50mm 1.8. I now have to buy a film camera for a class and i wanted to know if, if i go for one of the canon rebel film cameras, the lenses will fit.

 

Thank you for your help everyone

Yes, Hannah, it will fit. The 50mm f/1.8 was initially released for the film EOS cameras.

 

Any lens that is identified as "EF" will fit film and digital EOS SLR cameras.

Re: Compatibility

I am assuming he means fully manual capability; in other words it would be OK if the camera has an AUTO mode as long as it can be also used fully manual.

 

Look for a used film Rebel if you want to use your existing lens. There were many different models. I will send you a private message.
