canon lens compatibility?
Nov 7, 2009

Hi all,

I shoot Nikon, so I do not know offhand the answer to this question.

A dear friend of mine wants to get a decent introductory dSLR, and asked for my advice. They have shot canon film cameras before, and have a few lenses (I don't yet know which, but nothing of amazing quality is my guess). Will they likely work on modern dSLRs from canon? Is there an advantage between the 40/50D line and the Rebel line in this regard?

Over in Nikonland I would suggest they look at the either the 5000D or the D90. Rebel or 50D in canon? how is kit lens? ideally something like the nikon 18-105.

Many thanks,
