Hello, I'm a total photography idiot errr newb.
When I was young, my grandmother began teaching me about photography, and I took it up as a minor hobby but quit when the cost of developing film became rediculous to quality rendered.
For my birthday this year, she got me an XT body and a adapter from Amazon, under the understanding that it would work with all her lenses she used to use for her T 90.
I am gathering from various sources that this does NOT WORK and I need to repurchase all my (expensive, that I cannot afford) lenses. Or, that I need many varied expensive adapters to use these lenses, and even then, they will "never be the same".
Needless to say, I am both heartbroken and sick to my stomach.
Here are the lenses that I have, to my understanding (I am reading what it says on the inner part of the rim, as I don't really understand what to call these lenses, I understand only what they do, so I hope I call them by their correct names. Please pardon me, who knows nothing about anything )
Sigma Mirror-Telephoto 1:8 F=600 mm
52mm Vivitar 70-210 mm 1:4.4 MC Macro Focusing Zoom
Canon Lens FD 50mm 1: 1.8
Canon Macro Lens FD 50mm 1: 3.5
and I have another no-name lens that looks like the smaller non-macro 50, but it rattles when I shake it, so maybe its broken. I think one of them was.
Help. please. Very scared SLR virgin. Very scared.
