I can't decide between the Canon A-1, AE-1 Program, or a newer EOS Elan 7 body. They are all within $25-30 of each other, except that the EOS does not come with any lenses. The other two have 50mm lenses. The Elan would seem to make the most sense, being that it's a body for which I already have glass (I've been shooting Canon for years). My workhorse lens is usually the 17-85, which is my only EF-S glass and not compatible with the Elan, but that's fine because I'm looking for a film camera for a specific portraiture project which will be mostly shot with a 50mm anyway. However, if I'm going to go film, I'd love to have the feel of an older body - manual everything, though I'd prefer a reliable built-in meter. I have two film bodies, the Yashica Electro GTS rangefinder (I didn't like shooting it that much), and a Minolta SRT101 (free handmedown), which I went to run a roll through today and found that the meter was stuck, even though the battery checks out as it was recently replaced. That one has a 55/1.7 on it, but the glass is covered in fungus - so I'd have to get the meter fixed, and get a new lens for it. I have a handheld meter, but would prefer to be able to shoot on the fly for this project. I'll probably use the meter often anyway, but I don't want it to be necessary. Any thoughts? I love the look of the A-1, but I don't know if that one's the best choice. I have found all the above cameras for $50 or less, but I'm open to other brands if I can find a body/lens combo for a similar price.
