    I am a posting this thread for a friend. She was given this canon set up and two lenses.
    1) Canon EOS 1000F
    2) Canon zoom lens EF 35-80mm 1:4-5.6
    3)Canon lens EF 50mm 1:1.8 II

    my questions are:
    1) with the lenses above , is it worth keeping and sticking to canon system?? , i am planning to buy a dslr to replace the canon EOS 1000F and use the two lens above.. If i buy a dslr, which model of camera is compatible with the two lenses above??

    2) How good are the lenses above, I plan to move ahead in photography so if the lens are not worth keeping, i may have more options as to which camera system i may go into rather than just sticking to canon.
    Thanks for suggestions

    I am not a Canon DSLR guy ... but I do know that the 50mm f1.8 is a keeper.
    (I wish I had one for my DSLR).

    You can use that on any Canon DSLR.

    The EF 35-80mm ... not too sure about that one, but I believe that it will also work with the Canon DSLR system.

    You can try to sell the EOS 1000F w/ 35-80mm ... and use that to invest in a Canon DSLR.
