    The EF and the Ftbn, are the best of the cameras you have.

    I thought the AE-1 Program was shutter priority or all Program. I haven't seen any way to make it work with aperture priority anywhere, perhaps you have the two mixed up?

    You're quite correct the A1 was Canon's first S.L.R.to offer aperture priority automation.

    The FTBn is a terrific manual camera that doesn't always seem to get the respect that it deserves. It is virtually bulletproof and built to last.

    I've had an Ftbn for about 35 years and have recently retired it, it's still in good condition and working O.K but needs a C.L.A.which would be uneconomical for me to have done.

    I'd probably try the AE-1. Was it the best seller of the FD mount cameras? And there should be enough AE-1 cameras out there that it shouldn't cost an arm and a leg.

    I picked up an A-1 recently. The seller included the manual, which is good. The camera has lots of options. I'm looking forward to having some fun with it.

    They sold over a million AE1's, your A1 is a better camera I.M.O. because. It has more exposure options.

    My favorite of the A series, is the A-1. It is the most flexible of the bunch for auto modes.

    With the MA motor drive it has been a enjoyable companion since I bought it new, in 81.

    I have the AE-1P as well, but the A-1 is still my baby.

    The A-1 is also my favorite of the A series.

    I had all four, once upon a time. They're all gone now, except for a few FTbn. Uneconomical or not, I had two of them CLA'd and the battery circuit adjusted for modern batteries. They're wonderful cameras. I never got on with the EF, I was always frustrated with the unfortunate placing of the ON/OFF switch; I always seemed to turn the camera off with my right thumb when I raised it to my face. Of the A series the AT-1 was my favorite, I may even have one or two around here, though I haven't seen them for a while. An F-1 and New F-1 both see occasional use.

    Don't even ask about my T90s...

    I am beginning to resent being referred to as 'half-fast'.
    Whatever that's supposed to mean.
