    Hello to all!

    This may be an odd question but here goes...

    I've been reading reviews about the Canon 10D. It looks good.

    My question is:
    Is there -any- possibility that lenses from an old mid-eighties Canon AE1
    might, -might-, fit a Canon 10D.

    I'm hopeful the answer could be yes.

    I have to assume, 'no'.

    Any responses are appreciated.
    Thanks in advance!

    The answer is "no." Canon orphaned FD lenses, customers be damned.

    The answer is "maybe" - if you can get your hands on an FD-EOS adapter.
    Several types were made, some resulting in loss of infinity focus,
    others being effectively a short teleconverter. You'll be having to use
    stop-down metering (or aperture priority) and manual focus with any of

  4. Yes. There are 2 Canon FD-EF adapters, and a 3rd party one. The 3rd
    party one is probably the only one you can get nowdays.

    There is an FD Lens to EOS body adaptor available.
    I've never used one, or seen one being used ... you should investigate a bit
    before buying.

    Here is a link to one at B & H


    If the Link doesn't work for you select:

    Home < Cameras & Photo Gear < 35mm Systems < Body & Lens Accessories < Lens
    Accessories < Lens to Body Adapters

    and you should be able to find it.

    Steve. Here you go. I am in the same Dilemma. I just purchased a Canon Rebel and i have a lot of nice lenses for my AE-1. Now i'm SOL and dont want to drop $1,000 into 2 or 3 lenses. So i have been looking around and found an Adapter.

    That is a link to 19 FD to EOS (Auto Focus) Adapters. They are inexpensive, considering you are going to pay around $300 per lens. I was reading another forum where this guy made his own adapter and he said the old lenses work great, it just has to be pretty bright.
