I have a Canon Rebel 2000 (35mm camera) and a Canon Rebel XT (digital). My lenses for my 35mm work on my digital, but the stock lens (17-55mm) that came with the digital doesn't fit on the 35mm camera. Can anyone tell me how I will know if the lens will work on both cameras when I buy lenses in the future? I usually buy through B&H.

Thanks,

Natalie

If the lens is EF-S lens they will only work on the following cameras:

EOS 30D, 20D, 20Da, Digital Rebel XT and Digital Rebel only.

If you click on the link and then click thevarious lenses, it will show the EF-S lenses are only for the above cameras. I don't know if you can use the other lenses to go back and forth. Hope this helps a little.

Thanks-- That was just what I was looking for. Although, a disappointing answer. I was hoping all lenses would be compatible.

In the case of Sigma lenses, their DC lenses are digital only, but there are DG lenses which are digitally optimized full frame designs so can be used on both film and digital.
