Default Will Rebel XTi lenses fit T2i?

I'm going to get the Canon T2i or the T3i and my dad has the Rebel Xti with two extra lenses (18-55 and the 55-250) Will these lenses fit the T2i and T3i? It will save me a lot of money just buying the body.

The 18-55 lens that came with the XTi was not very good, and was also not stabilized. The newer 18-55 that comes with the T2i and T3i is much better, and it's stabilized.

Only one version of the 55-250 was ever produced, and it's pretty good (for the price). Plus, it's stabilized.

Thanks for the info. I can get the T2i body for $550 Can. or $650 with the 18-55 lens or $830 with the 18-55 and 55-250 lenses. Now I have to decide.

The 18-55 IS is worth the extra $100. Your father's 55-250 will work just as well with your T2i as a new one would.

My dad also has an 18-200 but he keeps it on the camera all the time. I would love to have that one. He said he paid about $350 for it.

My XSi came with a stabilized 18-55, so I know they were bundled back at least that far.
The only real issues you'll have with the EF lenses is if you try to use EF-S glass on a 35mm camera. They're designed to get a bit closer to the sensor, clearing a 1.6 sized mirror, and the full frame mirror will strike.
Not sure about full frame digis, though... I guess it might be a problem there, too.
