    I just got a huge lot of cameras and lenses for $50. I am going to sell most of them off but, being a Nikon guy, I am not familiar with the Canon Line. I would like to keep the best Canon Eos / Rebel body to use.
    Which one is the best to keep?

    Thanks!

    Here is the list of the EOS bodies:
    Canon Eos Rebel 2000
    Canon Eos 620
    Canon Eos 1000 FN
    Canon Eos Rebel XSN
    Canon Eos Rebel II
    Canon Rebel TI
    Canon Rebel 2000
    Canon Eos Rebel S
    Canon Eos ELAM
    Canon Eos Rebel XSN

    Most Rebel film bodies I come across end up in the trash because they don't work and no one wants them for parts. Even the working ones only fetch about $5 - $10 and they don't exactly fly off the shelves at that price. So, I guess the Elan wins (if it works).

    The nice thing is that there were plenty of lenses, flashes and other cameras, like 5 Canon AE-1 Programs, 10 Minolta Maxxums, X-700s, x-370s and about 50 other bodies. So no wasted money. :)
    I have a nice Canon A-1 personally, but I would like to try our a newer, Canon as well.

    Keep the Elan, sell the rest for parts cameras. Too bad you don't have an A2 E in that bunch, I LOVE my A2E.

    Work me up a price for the EOS620 and two AE-1s and a few 50mm 1.8 if you have them.
    Shoot me a PM if you would.
