Do slr lenses fit all cameras?
Generally, no. Each manufacturer has proprietary mounts for their lenses and, for example, Nikon lenses will not fit a Canon and so on. There are aftermarket lenses made to fit various cameras, but you need to specify the make and even sometimes the model of the camera in order to get a mount that fits.

Lenses From 35 mm Fitting Canon SLR . Absolutely! The only trouble I have had is with a 2X converter and a 400mm lens. It would not auto focus or stop down. I still got an …OK photo of the moon. I migrated ALL my lenses successfully. I think film lenses work on digital. Digital do not work on film. Why not? Due to the .625 smaller area covered by the lens. They will not even mount.. The answer above is right, but if you have any troubles with canon and canon lenses just feel free to contact Canon Support Team. Visit canon's official website and there you'll be able to find a link to their customer support.
No, they do not. The Minolta XD-7, up to the X-700 takes the Minolta MD-type lenses.. There are no digital slr cameras that will take an MD-mount lens. Only a camera hacker w…ould be able to make an adapter out of spare parts in order to fit a specific dslr, and even then, the labor costs alone would be tremendous.
It depends on how old. Canon EF lenses made since 1987 for Canon EOS bodies will fit the new Canon EOS digital bodies. The older FD lenses (before 1987) will not fit Canon EOS… bodies, film or digital.
Canon EF lenses that fit Canon EOS cameras will fit all Canon digital SLR bodies. Canon FD lenses that fit Canon SLR's made before 1987 will not fit any EOS or digital EOS cam…era body. It depends on which DSLR you have as to which lenses can be used.
The answer is usually.... Look here for the definitive answer http://www.nikonians.org/nikon/slr-lens.html
I don't think they will fit any. The lens mount was changed right after the Canon T70. Someone told me they will fit a Nikon so I'm trying to find that out. (They don't fit Ni…kon cameras.). Canon T70 lenses only fit Canon SLR's (single lens reflex) made between 1964 to 1987.. The T70 uses Canon FD mount lenses. FD lenses can only be focused manually. All of the exposure communication connections between the camera and lens are mechanical. An EF lens will not fit onto an FD body.. In 1987, Canon introduced EOS cameras that use EF (electro-focus) lenses. All of the exposure and focusing communication connections between the camera and lens are electrical. An FD lens will not fit directly on to any EOS camera.. The Rebel XSi camera is a Canon EOS digital camera that can use EF lenses or the smaller EF-S lenses made for APS-C DSLR's.. Adaptors are available on a popular internet auction site that will connect an FD lens to an EOS body. The price in 2008 is just under $40, including shipping. Lens functions are manually adjustable only, and are not very convenient when used in this way.
No, Unless the SLR camera is Olympus it will not work because Olympus lenses sue 4/3rd lenses and will not fit on any other camera
Well, There are some producers of digital camera lenses in the world.. But the most popular are: Tamron, Sigma, Canon, Nikkor (Nikon lenses), Pentax and Kenko.
35 or 50 mm in a fixed lens, or a 35-70 (approx) zoom. Buy the best lens you can afford, and learn to use it well before moving onward. It is better to become proficient with …one lens than confused by several. . Remember that quality photography is not produced by the camera, but by the photographer's mind. The camera is the tool that records the image, nothing more. A great photographer can take great photos with a disposable camera. A poor one will produce junk from a Leica.
Yes they will. Of course screw mount lenses need an adaptor. M lenses will of course be manual focus. Some lenses will only work on aperture priority I think. Yes, all K-mou…nt lenses will fit the current Pentax digital SLRs. K- and M- lenses will be manual focus and need the metering to be set differently to newer lenses, using the camera's green button or AE-L button (depending on model) - and this sometimes over- or under-exposes so may need some experimentation to get it right in different conditions. It's fiddly so maybe best avoided unless you are an enthusiast. A- lenses will be manual focus but the metering will work normally, e.g. you can use the camera on fully automatic, aperture or shutter priority. FA-lenses work in the same way as digital-specific (DA) lenses - autofocus and any of the automatic settings can be used. One thing to note, film camera lenses were made for a 35x24mm film rather than a 24x18mm sensor as fitted to Pentax DSLRs. This means that they are on average 'longer', e.g. a 28mm lens is a wide-angle for film, but on a DSLR it's a standard-length lens (equivalent of a 42mm on film).
No, film single lens reflex (SLR) cameras exist, albeit obsolete. Currently all commercial single lens reflex cameras are digital, however, it may be possible to find a retail…er or more likely, a private seller in possession of a functional film SLR camera.
I have a Nikon slr d5000 and was wondering if the extra lenses had to be made by Nikon to fit my camera?
No as long as they have the correct mount.
Chinon lenses are either M42, 'Pentax screw.' which can fit any digital body with the relevant adapter, or Pentax K bayonet which will fit Pentax or (most) Samsung SLRs. NB… they will only meter stopped down to the taking aperture, and offer neither autofocus nor shutter priority/programmed modes. There is also the fact that film SLR lenses need longer focal lengths than their digital cousins due to the sensor being smaller, thus a 50mm standard lens for film is a short telephoto for digital.
Replacement lenses for a Sony SLR camera can be purchased directly through Sony. A visit to their website will give an idea of the cost. If a lower price is desired, then Amaz…on or EBay would be great places to comparison shop. It is also possible that replacement lenses could be purchased at stores that carry the Sony SLR camera.
You can purchase SLR camera lenses from the Argos website. Alternatively you may purchase some for more competitive prices from the amazon shopping website or if you were prep…ared to get a used lens from the ebay website.
One can purchase lenses for SLR cameras through online retailers such as Amazon or eBay. Alternatively, one could purchase SLR camera lenses at a physical store such as Best B…uy.
