    Question is, how "off" will my stuff look if I use an adapter ring on my XT to fit some Olympus OM-10 lenses?

    I found my dads old SLR and he has a fisheye, macro and wide angle lens for it. This would be a nice step into some other lenses and only have to buy an adapter which goes for ~$100-175.

    the old m42 lenses work well on eos cameras with an adapter ring

    Hash, are you saying it's not worth perusing even tho I'm adding 3 lenses on top of my kit lens for little scratch? I read about the shortfalls and having to set most of it manually. But still, 3 lenses...

    @ spider. Unfortunately, this would be only for the purpose of picking up some more lens options for cheap. I'm not out to use a particular brand that's not ment to fit.

    They will probably not be fun to use on a Digital Rebel body

    if you don't mind manually focusing, some of the old takumar primes are very good. I have a takumar 50mm f/1.4 that I got for $60 with a camera body that is every bit as sharp as the canon 50 1.4

    it sucks at first, but it gets very easy with some practice
