    My mom has an old Canon SLR film camera, and it might make my D70 vs 350D easier if I can use her lenses. I finally have the lenses in my hand and I'm trying to figure out if they'll fit.

    Here's the first one (not mine, but this is it):

    http://cgi.ebay.com/CANON-FD-135mm-...ryZ48552QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    The other one I can't find online, but this is what it says on the outside:

    Samigon Coated Optics 1:2.8 f=28mm KX.410487

    I have no idea what 90% of that means, haha, but I figure some of you will. So will these fit the Rebel XT? And even if they do, are they good enough to sway my decision between those two?

    Thanks.

    No... EF and EF-S lenses fit, Canon FD, SC and SSC lenses don't work on an XT.

    they sell an adapter...but it is blah from what I have read.

    Canon made an adapter that was ok i guess, but they are hard to come by.

    ... just like mounting a Nikon lens on a Canon, they will work, but you don't tell people Nikon lenses work on Canon cameras.
