My first SLR was a Canon AE1. I traded that in for a AE1p, and then did the same for a T70, which I still own. I have always admired the FD lenses, it was the Nikon camera bodies that lured me away. The high shutter speeds and aperture priority were too tempting. But you get over that. After trying a bunch of different manual focus film cameras, I am coming back to the FD system. The bright lasermatte screens, the easy lens mount, and the inexpensive yet high-quality lenses call for me. For less than $500 I bought the following lenses: 17mm f4, 24mm f2.8, 50mm f1.2, 85mm f1.8. All of these are in fantastic condition. I should have some results posted for you shortly.
