    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.

    Yes.

    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?

    AI: Auto-Indexing
    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.
