    Can any one answer this for me...

    Im looking to get a new lens for my 20d because the one ive got now is a bit crap. I would would like to get a canon brand lens but was wondering will any canon lens fit the 20d or do they have to be digital compatable? or is there a specific range that i must look at?

    thanks

    Daniel said it all. All EF (autofocus) lenses will fit. EF-S lenses will fit as well, but will only fit a few of Canon's digital SLR cameras and not any of the 35mm film EOS cameras. If that's not a concern, then they are good lenses to get wide angels with your 20D.

    Two good lens makers are Sigma & Tamron, check them out.

    Is content never deleted here or something? (new guy obviously)

    Secondly; why are people recommending a 28-75; 45-120 equ. is not the most practical general lens to have; I'm sure most people need some sort of wide; at least a 35 is not a 28...
