You can still find cat lenses with T-mounts. They will work fine on Canon cameras with a common T-mount to EF mount adapter, usually available from the same place that sells the lens.

Warning! Most large cats (800mm or 1000mm) will not mount on cameras with built-in flash units.

After all, no-one should be deprived of his doughnuts.

And although some might not want to hear it....

The original Canon camera was created in partnership with the fameous Japanese optical company.... Nikon.

In fact all Canon cameras from 1936 to 1948 were marketed and sold with Nikon Lenses....Nikon "Nikkor" lenses were used in Canon cameras until 1948, when Nikon created its first camera.

Just a little fun....

I am wondering if you have links to any detail on this relationship... When I first started researching my dSLR purchase a few months back I found an article that mentioned it, but now I can't find it again!!

well shoot I haven't read my post in some time... good thing you noticed or I might have tried to find some links...

As for trivia I can't seem to remember simple things like birthdays and phone numbers, but obscure camera trivia, with me till the day I die for some inexplicable reason...
