    if EOS mount, then yes. if FD mount, then no. if those are your lenses, then the best way to know is to try them out.

    maybe. chances are, those are nikon lenses. there's a nikon to canon adaptor for sale somewhere out there. but if you buy that, you'll have no control over the aperture from the camera, but as i see, you can control aperture from the lens itself. i'm talking about the 35-135 btw. plus there's no option to autofocus. so you'll be manual all the way. as for the 42-75, dli makita ang likod sa lens, so i have no idea.

    ask your mom what camera was used with these lenses. or if you want, you can google these lenses and find out what cameras they fit into.

    I'm using an M42 to EOS adapter so I can use screw mount lenses with my Canon 450D.

    Google for the old lenses you have and find out what mount they have and get the adapters for them from e-bay. I got all my adapters from ebay. Just make sure the sellers' ratings are 100%. Ask them to ship via EMS kay kung SAL perteng dugaya.

    So, if you you want to compliment a friend who's been with you through thick and thin ... just say to him or her, "You're a true Nikon!"
