Is it an EOS system camera (Autofocus)?

Canon changed the lens mount from the older FD mount used with their manual focus cameras to a newer EF mount (bayonet style Autofocus Mount) when they introduced their EOS System cameras in 1987.

If your lenses are EF mount (used with an EOS camera), they should work. If they're the older FD Mount Manual Focus lenses, they would not work without an adapter (which would have some drawbacks).
