Digital Rebel lens to Film Rebel?

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Rick Geyerman, Sep 23, 2006.

  1. I bought a new Canon EOS Digital Rebel XT and it works great. It came with
    an 18 - 55 mm lens.

    I already had a Canon EOS Rebel film camera with a 35 - 105 mm lens.

    I swapped the bigger film lens to the digital camera and it seems to work
    fine, but the new lens won't attach to the old film-camera body.

    What am I missing? Do I need an adaptor?

    just bob Guest

    The reason is it is an "EF-S" lens, and not EF

  4. OK. Next question, if that's OK...

    I've read (here) about dust contamination on a digital camera's CMOS
    sensors. Is it a big issue to swap these lenses back and forth in a
    relatively quiet space? Or, are we talking *surgically clean.

    My pictures are mostly for home use, but I've published magazine photos and
    that was the purpose of my new purchase.
