Now I can say I was a consumerist and bought something on Black Friday even if it was a film camera and glass on Craigslist. Really loving this 70-210 F4. I had hoped for the 28-70 version of that lens but the 35-70 isn't too bad. Maybe I'll trade.

I have been trawling Ebay for film cameras just in case they come with good glass attached. The best I saw was an Eos 50 with 50/1.4, 75-300 some something else for $222. I recently got a free 540EZ flash because I checked out an Eos 500 with 35-70 and the flash, but the flash didn't work. I had stated I was only in it for the flash because I already own gear, so they gave it to me for free in case I could make it work. I just cleaned up the battery terminals (they were corroded which I didn't see on first inspection) so I got a free flash. But most of the film cameras are coming with just kit lenses which are no better than an 18-55, and are less useful focal lengths like 35-70 or 28- 80 or 90.

There is nothing to differentiate a film lens from a digital lens unless you are referring to EF-S only. They tend to be in less useful focal lengths because of the crop factor though. Hence why EF-S exists. An interesting lens is a 22-55mm kit lens from the APS format EOS IX, but it's no better than an 18-55 and is less useful.

Anyone shooting a 5D could invest in 1990's EF lenses. I will probably be buying a 5D soon and will be shooting a 20-35 unless I can find a 17-35 or 40 for a good price.

As many megapixels as I could ever want all rolled into a film canister.

This.....I own a 5Dc and have a whole slew of 80's and 90's EF glass, including that 20-35. currently owning

20-35 f3.5-4.5
35-70 f3.5-4.5
70-210 f4
50 1.8 mk1
28-90 USM Rebel Ti kit

The only glass I paid market price for was the 20-35.....the 50 was 50 bucks, and the 35-70 and 70-210 were 50.

The 70-210 fares well on crop sensors because it's a telephoto, and the crop sensor will give it more reach. Look for the 100-300mm f5.6 push-pull. They made an L version that goes for around 475 and it's a good way to step into some legendary L glass inexpensively. With a crop sensor it would have an effective 450mm of reach, which on any camera is serious business.

The 22-55 is absolutely dreadful, I did not think Canon could make a lens that soft but they did. Any kit lens made for the EF-S range would comprehensively annihilate it smeared with grease all over the front element.
