I decided to pitch this out for all of you film slr buffs. I managed to find someone that was selling his Canon AE-1, along with Canon FD 50 mm lens 1:1.8, 28 mm 1:2.8 wide angle lens, Sigma 75 - 210 mm zoom lens, Vivitar 550 flash for hot shoe mount. Camera bag and accessories. All of that for $50. I've also found a Pentax K1000 on ebay that is currently hovering around $47 dollars that included the following: vivitar 273 flash w/ manual, SMC Pentax-M 1:2 50mm lens, Tokina 70-210mm 1:4.5-5.5 Zoom Lens, Tiffen 49mm UV protector, Quantaray 49 mm Spot filter, Untra Pod table-top tripod and Tamrac Expedition 3 Camera bag. my question is if you were in my shoes, which one would you pick? I'm completely new to film so I don't know exactly what I should be looking for, or what constitutes a "deal" I've heard that the Pentax is a workhorse and a great buy for beginners. Also, that the AE-1 is a good camera with a good supply of affordable FD lenses for the having. For the AE-1, I've read somewhere on the forums that there is a chance of "mirror squeak" but i'm not sure if that's going to be a problem or not. Should I jump on these chances, or should I wait it out for other bargains to appear?
