    Hey everyone,

    I currently have a Canon EOS Rebel Ti and I was wondering if the standard lens that comes with it will work with a Canon EOS Rebel XTi. I'm obviously pretty new so don't be too harsh :p. Of course, the reason I'm unsure is because one is digital and one is not.

    I'm on a tight budget so I'm trying to save money while still buying a good camera.

    I asked the same question awhile back and was told that the EF lenses will work with the XTi

    It's an EF lens so it'll work, but it will give you a much longer field of view than on your film camera. To have the same angles of view on your XTi that the 28-90mm gives you on your film camera, you'd actually need the EF-S 18-55 lens ($100 USD), taking the 1.6x crop factor of the sensor vs film into account. If you tend to use the wide end of your 28-90 a lot then you'll probably be disappointed. But if you tended to use the long end a lot for portrait type photos, it could actually work out pretty well.
