Toady a co-worker brought in her Canon A1 with several lenses (50mm 1.8, 28mm 2.8 and 100-300mm 5.6), all with original boxes and papers. She and her husband purchased the camera and lenses new back in the mid 1980's. He passed away several years ago and she wants to sell the camera and lenses. She knows I collect old 35mm gear. I know absolutely nothing about Canon. I have been reading up on the A1, but I'm not sure about known problems with this model. I promised her I would research the current prices and make her an offer. I have an idea of the value of the equipment, but I know nothing about this camera model and these lenses. Would this be a decent user-camera? Are there any things I need to watch out for or take care of prior to using it? Are these lenses decent performers? I am going to purchase a battery for it tomorrow and shoot a few rolls with it. This is the first time in my life I will be shooting with a Canon SLR! Comments and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
