I've been looking for a 35mm 'system' to complement a bit of old MF. It's been a VERY long while since I have used Canon but I remember some very happy times with an EOS 5 about 10 years ago. From what I remember, they were really nice to handle, fairly light, with a pretty good viewfinder... also mine actually survived a very long fall into a rocky ravine... long story, but sometimes plastic can be pretty tough huh! Anyway, any thoughts on the EOS5 would be appreciated as it's been a while. I am also going to initially get a 50mm and have no idea on what are the 'best buys' for a standard on a film body. Any recommendations appreciated. For what it's worth, I'll be using TMAX 400 and Portra 400 almost exclusively. Thanks for any advice.
