what lens mount should i get for rebel t3i?
on Mar 5, 2013 at 4:47:07 am

I'm new to buying lenses and was wondering what lens mounts to buy to attach my new lenses directly to the camera instead of having to mount them on another lens.

Here are the 2 lenses i purchased

I have to attach them to the kit lens to use them and was just wondering what i should buy to be able to use them on the camera itself.

Thanks

Both of those are lens adaptors - they are designed to fit onto the front of another lens. Direct body mounting is not going to be possible.

Is it too late to return those screw on lenses? You would have been sooo better of by purchasing the Canon 50mm 1.8 for $99-$120

That's actually the next lens I plan to purchase. A friend has it and it's great in low light

If you're going to be using the lenses for video I'd suggest you get some of the Nikon lenses with manual apeture, just get an EOS to Nikon adapter, Another option would be to get the Rokinon cine lenses with EOS fitting, again these have manual apeture and I've heard some good things about them and they are pretty well priced.

Lighting is really my only issue. If those will help in low light situations then I'll check them out. Thanks

You do realize that these aren't actually lenses, they are bolt on modifiers for lenses you currently have - ie. the glass you bought doesn't really have any integrated optics.

If possible, I'd return these and maybe get a Canon 50mm like was also mentioned, or a similar Tamron. You want the highest quality you can from a single lens that will cover your bases, both close up and farther away. I'm assuming you're on a tight budget, but if you are not, start looking at some Zeiss or Cooke glass, they will make pretty pretty images for your Ti.

Hope this helps!
