New lenses on old Canon Eos

Hello,

I have to check this before I go on a shopping tour ...

Does the IS USM lenses work on an older analog EOS camera?

I am thinking mostly of the image stabilisation.

Anyways, I am contemplating something like a 28 or a 35 as a one-lens solution.

I don't have it yet, but it is an Eos 1n.

Even then, if I would bring a lens (or bring it to the local photostore) I am not sure I can test the image stabilisation without having to run a film through the camera.

I used a 24-105 3.5-5.6 IS STM on my EOS RT recently and I had the impression this worked. Likewise the 20 USM worked fine on the RT (but that lens is an older desing). And that RT is quite old.

You see the stabilisation when you push the shutter button halfway. Suddenly your viewfinder becomes a lot more stable instead of jumping all over the place. Now this might be more visible with a tele than a wide.

Of course: YMMV, and other disclaimers apply. It is know that the working of IS depends a bit on the body.

I used 50L at EOS 3 and 200.
Both required weird and expensive batteries. Sorry, I can't check 100L on EOS 200, no batteries.
I don't see why it shouldn't. IS is in the lens, not in the camera.

There is no such thing as an old Canon Eos. Old Canon cameras stopped when they (treacherously) changed the mount 1987-1990.

Insert smiley or other emoticon if you can stand that sort of thing.

Cheers,

Yes, all EF lens will work on 'old' EOS film cam,
IS; stabilisation, USM; faster, quiet focusing, will work too,
There are newer 28/2.8 and 35/2 IS USM lens both will work on older EOS film cam. Canon aps-c lenses are EF-S named, with a white square dot on the lens, they don't even mount on the film eos camera. My experience is a ef 28/2.8 on EOS 10s, Elan and EOS 7 film cameras, works great!

One could've been waiting for someone to bring this up (I like emoticons)
Anyway, Canon prides itself that every lens works on any body. So, it should work.

Also, the Canon EOS 1n is from 1994, the 75-300 IS is from 1995 - IS mid-nineties technology, just like your camera.

Maybe not. Let's call them old fashioned film EOS'es.

I often wonder why more people don't shoot film on Canon EOS cameras. The modern lenses are outstanding (e.g. 135 F2, 85 1.2, 70-200 2.8) and Canon made some excellent film cameras (30, 3, 1V) with fantastic AF and Metering.
I get it though. People want film cameras to look old and have 'soul', character and that sort of thing, however as a picture taking machine they are hard to beat

There shouldn't be a problem at all.
I use newer lenses on film Eos bodies quite a bit.

As for the IS, as someone else said, it's in the lens so it should work fine (bear in mind that it's drawing power from the battery, which means it'll use it up a little faster, so take a spare).

I have a Sigma 50 Art, that I'm curious to try on film, (especially after calibrating it to a digital body).

I agree that they're great machines, but shhh, don't go driving the prices up haha.

All the lenses will work, including IS, on the EOS 1n. Great camera, by the way.

Shhh.. you're giving it away, don't!

Canon lenses (especially the recent ones) are great, and they work superbly on film cameras. Never break, never miss a beat -- just wonderful performance all along.

Trent Parke uses a few cameras including a Mamiya 7, but at least one of them is a 35mm Canon EOS. It was clearly visible mounted on a tripod during a documentary program about his Black Rose exhibition that aired a few months ago.

Thanks, gentlemen!

I have to say it is going to feel a bit odd having a €90 camera mated to a €500 lens.

But I can always close my eyes and imagine it is a Leica, and then it will feel like a right bargain!

There are some great eos film bargains out there, why bother with an eos 5 or 3 (both high end cameras when new and very expensive) when you can pick up a 1v for a couple of hundred pounds

This is absolutely correct - I have 2 1Vs, neither of which cost more than £220. I used one on holiday in Cornwall this year with slide film - and 'modern' L lenses - and the results were excellent.

I use a 40mm f/2.8 pancake lens on my EOS-1n, and it works just fine. Looks a little bit odd, though, sort of like a body cap with a lens, but it takes great pictures! I'm thinking of adding some other lenses to it: a 35mm and an 85 or 105mm, for a classic triad of lenses.

With best regards,

Pfreddee(Stephen)
