    Can someone provide me with a link to a database of what cameras are compatible with what lenses? found this on craigslist for cheap and want to see if it will fit my 350d...


    Pentax 35mm camera with 200mm zoom and a wide angle lens.

    pentax only works with pentax.
    canon only works with canon.
    nikon only works with nikon.

    olympus, panasonic and leica work with each other as long as they are 4/3 system.

    sigma, tamron, tokina make lenses for canon or nikon.

    Those are the general rules, there are exceptions but not many and they are exceedingly uncommon.

    There are adapters, but Canon only works with Canon and 3rd party lenses.

    I love how there's always someone that has to point out a completely irrelevant exception. :ugh:

    i just got the tamron 17-50mm f2.8 lens for my 300d. i love it. it takes amazing pictures and was a pretty good price. I took over 1200 shots with it during my 2 week trip to Japan. So many of them would not have even been possible with the kit lens.
