Will a lenses for a Rebel 2000 35mm fit onto and work for a Rebel XT?
Yes. Any EF lens will work on any EOS camera. There are EF-S lenses, and those will work only on the entry or mid level DSLR Canon bodies.
So yes, it will work just fine...but it will give you a narrower field of view than you would get on the film camera beacuse of the 'Crop Factor'
Yup. For the XT (350D) any EF or EF-S mount lens will work.
What about nikon af slr lenses on say a d200?
A D200 will use any Nikon lens (or any other F mount) except a Pre-AI. And you can mill out a Pre-AI lens and use it anyway (a lens like this is said to have been AI'd).
What the heck is "Pre-AI" ?? I don't think I've heard that term before... (or have and forgot.)
AI?? Hmmm... Auto Indigestion?
Pre-AI: Lenses made before auto-indexing was developed
Pre-AI lenses have some differences in the mount that will "conflict" with some modern Nikon F mount bodies, but can be modified to work with them.
Separate names with a comma.
