    Cheap Manual 35mm SLR (w/ lens) for Student

    Hi all,

    I've got a friend who wants to learn so I'm looking for a cheap manual SLR in good functioning condition for her. Anything like a Minolta SRT 101/102, Canon AE-1, Nikon FM. No leaks or damage please. Preferably something with a 50mm or maybe a 35mm lens (ideally 50). I'm asking here because I don't want her to buy something broken or with leaking light seals off of ebay or something and I know people here will provide something in good quality.

    Let me know if you have something. Thanks!

    I have a box full of nice Canon FD gear - T50, T70 and A1 bodies, lots of primes (including 50 f1.8) and zooms. it wasn't leaking but I actually have a new set of seals for the A1.

    I have canon AE-1P, 50/1.8 28/2.8 55/3.5 marco and 1:1 extend ring, perfect for beginner. I also have canon New F-1 but I am keeping it.
