    A person at my office saw that I was into photography and asked if I wanted to use her camra for a while. Well I love my digital but want to try out 35mm so I said yes... she told me that it was totally manual but I use my digi cam in M mode all the time anyway. So anyway I want to know what you guys think of the cam... she even said she would sell it to me for 50 - 100 dollars.

    It's a great camera. Probably one of the highest selling camera models of all time. That's a nice set of lenses as well. I'd buy it, if I was you.

    I have almost the same thing...it's a Canon AE-1 Program...I love it. I agree with Mikey up there...great buy. And I am extremely jealous of those lenses and filters!!!!!

    Yes yes!!!

    It looks in good shape. $50 to $100 with all those goodies is a very good deal!
