    I just recently got into photography. Right now I am using my moms old Canon AE 1 SLR film camera. I wanted to know if I could use the lenses I already have on a new camera? I was thinking of buying a canon rebel Ti or a Nikon N65 and they are both cheaper without a lens. Thanks.

    They won't work with any Nikon. If your current lenses are EF then they'll be compatible with new Canons.

    Your lenses are most liekly Canon FD (non-autofocus) lenses. You'll need an adapter to use them on an autofocus camera, and will never autofocus, but yes they can be used. Nikon makes the best pre-Canon IS Lenses. The Canon Image Stabalizer lenses (IS) are the best available, but also the most expensive
