God I'm such a plonker
There I go emailing and messaging Canon and SLRHut in my usual hysterial out of control frantic mode, after I received my brand new shiny Canon EOS 1200D with accessory bundle - 'cos the extra lenses they supplied wouldn't fit the body of the camera.
I was right downpressed. Disappointed. Pissed off. Now I had to find a bloody step up or step down ring adaptor, to fit the lenses to the camera, didn't I?
I'm lying in bed just now and it hit me ... the fucking lenses screw into the Canon kit lens that came with the body of the camera! They are EXTENSION type/format lenses. So I get up, put the lights on wake up the house, try out my new theory and voila the lenses screw in just perfectly fine onto the existing Canon lens!
Bloody hell, I can't believe how much of a newbie twit I am and I'm embarrassed.
But delighted at the same time!
'Cos now I can get to play with the wide angle and the telephoto lenses ... whoopy dah.
As you were.
