I have a vintage film AE-1 with several lenses (50mm) and I am getting into photogaphy and will be purchasing a digital SLR. Would be great to use the lenses I have for the new camera....is this possible? Thanks.

FD mount lenses are not compatible with EOS Digital cameras. The FD series lenses use a mechanical lens mount, while the EF lenses (used on the EOS SLR cameras) use an electronic lens mount. There was simply no way to preserve compatibility with the change.
I hope this helps,
