I'd guess the answer is "probably" - without knowing what the specific lens is, it's difficult to be more certain but if it's a Canon fit then almost certainly.

Just as it's possible to fit non-Canon M42 (42mm screw-fit) lens with an appropriate adapter (but care has to be taken that there's no rear projecting parts which could damage the mirror. I've a few M42 lenses which I've successfully used with my Sigma camera - a superb way of acquiring quality lenses with minimal outlay

Any Canon "EF" fit or "EF-s" fit lenses will work fully on your 400D.

Sigma, Tamron or Tokina "Canon EF fit" lenses with also work fully with the 400D but some older 2nd hand Sigma lenses may need to be re-chipped before giving full functionality.

Older non EF fit lenses as Markulous has already mentioned will need an adapter.
