The new lenses designed for the D20 (17 -55/85mm) do not fit on the D10. The reason is that these lenses were specifically designed for the D20, these lenses sit closer to the mirror than in the conventional design (D10). Apparently this design is cheaper to produce.
My question is, has anyone heard of adapters which will permit the use of these lenses on the older EOS range? Or has any idea what made Canon design lenses which are not downwardly compatible?

The EF-S lens are only compatible with the 20D and the 300D, there is no adapter to use the EF-S lens on the 10D or any other EOS body.

As an aside, for your infothe only EOS cameras with the Dxx name were the D30 and the D60, all newer "prosumer SLR" Canons use the xxD naming method.

It is an interesting question though.

Why isn't there an adapter to make the EF-S mount lenses compatible with the older EF bodies?

Surely it is possible?
