I believe neither of those cameras are an EOS lens mount (I think the older one was called FD.)

If I am right, none of those lense will work on a modern Camon DSLR.

Sorry.

there's an FD to EOS adapter out there, so you can use it on any Canon DSLR. I can't remember where I saw it, but i'm sure you could google it.

If you go the adapter route, make very sure that you don't loose functionality like auto focus or some metering modes. ETTL-2 might not work with it, as that require distance information from the lens, which that might not provide (or maybe it will... I truly don't know.)
