Is there anyway to make the EF-S 18-55 fit a film body? Even if it takes "extra" work.

I am not too sure if sawing off the rubber ring will work or not, because the rear element might obstruct the mirror's operation.

lol, well film body and 18-55s are pretty cheap. So yeah if I could somehow get a few fish-eyes without spending the $260+ for a real one to fit my DSLR that would be cool.

IMHO you should only try to saw the rubber ring in the back of the lens to mount the lens on:

Canon D30
Canon D60
Canon 10D

Not Canon full-frame dSLR's and film-cameras...

Just my two cents...


EOS 5D Mark II | EF24-105 f/4L IS | EF100-400 f/4.5-5.6L IS | EF200 f/2.8L II | 580EX | Manfrotto 055xProB + 808RC4, and 679B

This has been done for the 10D - see this link:

The problem is, that if you do this for a film camera, chances are the lens will protrude into the mirror box and damage the mirror mechanism when shooting.

well I have been reading about the EOS IX lite and it seems it is a 1.25 crop factor body. So my 18-55 would look like a 14-44 on my 1.6 DSLR.
here is a artical on the EOS IX lite

I did it (on a new Kiss).
but you cant use 18mm...the mirror hits the rear lens (oops) and theres terrible vignetting.

I've modified my kit lens this way and have used it on a film body.
The rear elements most certainly do contact the flip up mirror when the lens is zoomed to the wide end.
Here's the image you get at 18mm on full frame (i used prefocusing and mirror lock up to do this) -
