Bought this with insurance money in 1985 to replace the stolen Canon AE1 I'd bought in 1978 to coincide with the birth of my first kid. It worked with the FD lenses I had for the AE1. Brilliant first camera with a chip inside. No auto-focus but worked with lovely Canon & 3rd party FD glass. Still works fine. Supplanted when Canon developed its EOS electronic link between lens and camera to coincide with the new EF lenses and auto-focus in the late 80s - but not for me till years later. Despite eventually getting a 2nd-hand EOS-1, this was my all-time favorite camera till very recently when digital SLRs developed some of the same capabilities (and more).... Had this insured for lots of money for ages till I saw the prices on eBay, whereupon I bought a 2nd one as a back-up in case it breaks down, which it shows no sign of doing: lens still worth more than the camera despite not being compatible with new Canon SLRs. That lens is amazing: maybe one day I can afford the equivalent in EF - though 1.6 crop means I get something like the same effect with the brilliant-value 85mm f/1.8 lens that is just so great for portraits.
