Canon DSLRs

Am wondering if anyone knows if Canon makes any DSLRs that will accept my older SLR non-auto/electronic focus lenses? Which models if any are they? I want to upgrade but lenses can get expensive and my old ones a prefectly fine.

All of Canon's DSLRs use the EOS mount. If your lense will

work in that mount, then you are in. It would probably be best to check for compatibility at a Canon dealer.

Wrong / Right Answer

Thanks for answering my question. Unfortunately, all my lenses are not EOS mount. They are the older bayonet mount. That's bad news for me.

My guess is that

you must have the old Canon FD lenses, instead of Canon EF or EF-S lenses. Therefore, those old lenses won't work on new Canon DSLR. It's time to switch to the newer EF lense model or other lense brands, such as Sigma, Tamron, or Tokina that are compatible to Canon DSLR. Good luck.

Looks like

The DSLR market is wide open to you. Maybe you could get some money for them on e-bay. The only camera maker that doesn't change mounts with the seasons is Nikon. Besides, the new Canon lenses are pretty good if you get the right one and now they have IS for the right price.
