Eyed the EOS 1 series.... but was way over my budget at the moment. Couldn't afford the Elan either. An EOS 5 (A2E) came along my way. $219 (ebay). I don't know if thats a lot for this machine. Anyways, I'm glad. Looks like my 10D's sibling... but a lot lighter. And for THE first time I saw 'normally' thru the 50mm . Have heard lots about the 50mm being the 'normal' lens. I love this lens! Its a happy evening! Don't know nothing about the basic operations!! Couple of dumb queries for starters: 1. Don't it have an On/Off button?? Or does it turn on when you load the film in? 2. The instruction book said that the equipment will automatically selet the film speed setting. Question: What happens if I decrease or increase the ISO settings manually? How is it going to affect the exposure?
