    I was wondering if there are any Canon manual focus slr's tha can will work with canons EF line of lenses. I shot a EOS 350d and am looking at getting into film photography (wanting to go down the manual focus route) and kind of want to be able to use my EF lenses.

    Thanks

    Welcome to the forum.

    You can switch the AF off, on any of the EF lenses.
    Any of the Canon EOS film camera, of which there are many, will accept EF lenses.

    As Mike says any Canon with an EF mount will take the EF lenses (assuming they are 'full-frame' 35mm lenses and not the EF-S lenses designed for the smaller image circle of the digital Rebels). All of these are autofocus cameras; there are no manual-focus-only cameras with the EF mount (unless of course you buy one with broken AF :lol: ). Manual focus is still possible - you just switch it to manual focus - though some might say not as easy as with the older MF lenses on the older MF cameras due to the difference in viewfinders/focusing screens and some AF lenses not having distance scales.
