I'm not sure you would want to: you would need to at least double the focal length just to get an image (or it will barely register on your sensor). Might have luck converting to M43, but no promises. I just bought a set of FD primes for my Canons and I absolutely love them: $400 for 4 lenses (28, 35, 50, 85) plus converters and they're all reasonably fast lenses. Maybe you can sell your old 16mm lenses and use something else? I hear the new digital bolex takes c-mount lenses, too.

Save early. Save often.
