    I like the FE better because it's aperture preferred. I'm not a fan of shutter priority. Of course you can shoot manual on both cameras so pick whichever you prefer.

    Sorry but the Canon AE1 is not a great camera. It was a great success for Canon as they can sell a lot of them but not a great camera for the user.

    Matter of opinion, by definition. I find its handling to be intuitive (whereas Nikon has the aperture ring backwards) and its functionality to be just at the right level, except for the mildly unfortunate shutter priority and those darn miniature negatives.

    I don't know who first said "Nikon makes the best lenses, Minolta makes the best bodies, and Canon makes the best compromises", but I think they had a point.

    The only 2 camera bodies I've had die and turn into bookends were Minoltas, and one was an SRT. Suppose I could use it as a hammer when I rebuild the shed.

    I have both. I would suggest that if you are on a budget go canon FD. Nikon lenses, because they are still very useful on some current cameras if AI or newer, are more expensive.
    If you have lots of cash and like aperture priority get an FE.

    sent from phone. excuse my typing.
