need help buying a 35mm slr, future Dslr

Discussion in 'Photography' started by Gauthier Design, Sep 8, 2004.

  1. I had an old olympus camera (OM-4) and it took amazing photo, I sold it to
    buy a digital camera last year... I bought a Panasonic LC43 (4.1 mp) and
    after 6 month, I can say with total honesty that this is a peice of crap and
    I hate it.

    So what I want to do is go back to an 35 mm slr. and purchase a kit on ebay
    that has 2 or 3 good lenses, flash and accessories. I want to buy this
    camera and later on buy a Dslr BODY and still keep all lenses and
    accessories from the previous purchase. So my question is this:

    Which 35 mm Canon Camera would be compatible with the Digital Rebel or
    Digital OES 10D, or 20D
    Which 32 mm NIKON Camera would be compatible with the D70 or D100

    Thanks

    canon and a Nikon F80/N80

    I have been doing a lot of research on the subject of DSLR for Nikon. I
    have found the F100 Nikon (N100 in the USA) carries much of the same
    attributes as the Digital D70 and its lenses are all completely compatible.

    Be aware that the SLR lenses on a digital body will become more of a zoom
    than on the regular body, so you will lose the wide angle.

    And also be aware that the DSLR lenses will NOT fit on the regular body.
