I have the TCON-17 that I was using on a Minolta 7i before I bought the DRebel. Will it work on the new camera, and if so where can I get a stepdown ring for it?

I think you will have problems because of the much larger sensor in the DReb. I predict serious vignetting!

Jamison is correct... Normally you want a step-up ring (ie in the D7i case)!

Most Canon lenses are 58mm or larger (only a couple of lenses are 52mm), but just in case you want to try anyway, they sell 55-58mm step down here: http://www.camera-depot.com/stepping.htm
