Finally got my AE-1 Black Body today. Wow! This thing is MINT! The guy I bought it from (for $55) really didn't know what he had. There is only one very small scratch on it. No rub marks or brassing anywhere what so ever. Absolutely no shutter squeak or abnormalities. Flawless operation and appearance of all controls and the foam is in pretty decent shape overall. The only problem is that I didn't learn until today that the lense I ordered for it (Canon 50mm f/1.8) doesn't work with the built in metering system because of some pin that gets pushed down by the back of the lens :cry: So I guess I'll have to take my DSLR along as a meter for now until I get a different lens or my 2x converter shows up. Oh well. Loaded with a spool of FUJI Reala 100 for the break-in this weekend. I'll have to post some when I get it all shot>developed>scanned (which could be awhile!). Man you just gotta love the sound from these old school cameras! I forgot what I was missing!
