    If I go with a used Canon AE-1 with lenses and a flash, what should I expect to pay (ballpark)? I don't want to get ripped off.

    I spent $50 on E-Bay for an AE-1 and two generic lenses. Not sure if that is good or bad though. Was good enough for me :lol:

    If you look on ebay like the user above mentioned, it's dirt cheap right now for the camera and 50mm lens. I would say 50 bucks. I saw one auction today that had the lens, the camera and a flash for cheap.

    I have an AE1, and it's a great camera. Although, my Dad paid a lot for it for afew years ago :(

    Search for the equipment on Ebay, and then check out the "completed" listings. This way you can see auctions that ended and what the cameras are/aren't going for. Also check out these companies; they are both very reputable used camera dealers. They will be more expensive than Ebay, but their return policy may be better than Joe Blow Ebay.
