I've recently purchased a 3000i, and I've got the old zoom lens handed down\nfrom my mom's now ruined 300si. I was wondering if they're fully\ncompatible, and if not, what are the incompatibility issues?\n\nThe item in question is a 35-70mm f3.5-4.5 lens, sold standard with the\n300si, I believe. Either way, it is mentioned as the "optional lens kit" in\nthe back of the 300si manual, page 40.\n\nIt's not much of a problem for me to grab another lens if they're not\ncompatible. I haven't tried the lens itself, as we haven't been able to\nlocate the box it's in quite yet. She does say it's mine once we locate it.\nIt's the only thing she saved from the 300si, except for the book and the\ncamera case, which should fit the 3000i nicely. The book is all we have\nfound thus far. Going through the old boxes and stuff is murder on the\nback.\n\nAny help appreciated. Thanks.
