    Default Maybe a stupid question?????

    I have a Canon EOS Rebel 35mm and I'm planning on buying a Digital T1i. Would I be able to use the new 18-55mm lens with the 35mm?? If for some reason, I ever want to???

    Just curious.

    Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure you could. I got the kit with the 18-55 too, and to be honest, its a lousy lens IMO. If I could go back I never would have bought the kit. I would have just got the camera body, and put the extra money towards a better lens, or if you want a cheap but good lens, get the 50mm 1.8 instead. It's probably about the same price, and I've seen great things done with that lens!

    I agree with getting the 50mm 1.8 lens. I wish I would have in the beginning, but I didn't listen. It doesn't leave my camera! GL & KUP!

    I don't shoot Cannon, so I can't say for sure, but be sure to check compatibility with any lens you get. With most camera makers, older film lenses still work on the new digital cameras (some of the lower end Nikons are the exception here), but quite often the new digital lenses don't work well with the old film cameras.

    Just be careful.

    On a similar note, I have an old Canon SLR film camera that has some accessories with it, sitting in a cupboard...one item is a Speedlite so I wondered if it would fit onto my Canon T1i and it did! It even works too lol! But it needs a diffuser IMO or otherwise it's just like a bigger built-in flash really.

    I had been using the lens that came with the 35mm on my Rebel 300D, but I'm selling the digital camera and want to send the lens with it. The person I'm selling it to doesn't have a lot of money and I don't want her to have to buy a lens as well.
    I don't see why a lens that's for a digital camera wouldn't work on a 35mm and if it doesn't so be it. I have an old manual 35mm that belonged to my friend's dad. If I really want to shoot film, I can just use that.

    Thanks again for the input and I'm definitely going to look into the 50mm 1.8 lens. Any other accesories you ladies feel are "must haves"?
