    Any lenses?
    I learned on an AE-1. Nice heavy camera. Loved it!
    Mine developed a light leak on a chance of a lifetime cross country (Ohio to California) drive. Bryce Canyon, Rushmore, Devils Tower, Thermopolis, Badlands, Big Rock Candy Mountain....all photos (hundreds) ruined by orange lines running through them.

    Bet that was discouraging. Surprised you still buy Canons...

    I see AE-1's on craigslist for like, 150 bucks... Finding one laying around is way better.

    Heh...it's a camera from the 70's...I bought it in the 90's for $75. Worked great for years. Light leak, year 2000. I still have it. I have tried to have it repaired twice, but nobody really listens to what I think is wrong, or how to correct it. Because, you know, what do I know? :roll:
    I still have it.

    I loved the old AE-1s and the A-1s ... as long as the leather bushings inside haven't dried out you will not get the dreaded "Canon wheeeeeeeeeeeze"

    My dad has one in the basement that my grandfather used to use. It has a Canon 50mm 1.8 lens on it. Is it worth anything? I am not sure if he is planning to sell it, just asking. To bad that lens didn't mount to my XS.

    You are progressing well in your development as a photogrpaher. You are already up around 70%.
