Both the T3 and the T3i can be used with any of the EF or EF-S lenses.

Does anyone know if their lenses are interchangeable? Like if you get a lens that is for the T3i can you use it for the T3? Thanks.

I've had the t3i for about a year now and I absolutely love it!! It's great for everyday use or for shooting sports, fireworks, concerts, and more! Wonderful camera.
