    I have several lenses that I used for a now discarded Canon SLR (analog, print film; can't remember the model, but we're talking early 90's circa). My question is;

    If I purchase a high-end digital Canon SLR, e.g., EOS, would it accommodate these lenses?

    Thanks, in advance for your replies & input.

    if they are EF lenses, yes. If they are FD, NO.

    The newer EOS system is incompatible with the old FL/FD series.The lenses may be able to be attached through an adapter, but none of the aperture couplings will work. Metering will be through stop-down method. It's not worth the trouble.

    Read this for more information:

    Canon EOS lens Adapters - Manual focus lenses on Canon EOS bodies

    Since the flange-to-film distance on the FD series is 42mm, and on EOS it's 44mm, the FD lenses won't focus on infinity.
