    Although I've always favoured Nikon I bought 5 (count 'em) Canon SLRs in 2010. The reason being that FD glass won't fit DSLRs or movie cameras (easily) and is much cheaper than later Nikon or Canon offerings.
    The AV-1 is an overlooked camera, offers sufficient manual exposure compensation on an aperture priority body and comes cheap. The A-1 is a multi-mode analogue beast but great fun and the FTb is tough little all-manual nut. The F-1 is a lovely camera but good examples have climbed into collector prices and there's a lot of thrashed ex-pro bodies around. If I had to choose I suspect the FTb is the camera most likely to make the 22nd century intact.

    No need to avoid the EOS 3. Just because your EOS 3 had issues does not mean all the others do too. Have you sent your EOS 3 to get checked? It is broken! Just fix it....the EOS 3 is an excellent SLR and has an excellent reputationa and following.

    Of course, the 1v is the body of choice....
    Coming back home to my film roots. Canon EOS-3 SLR, Canon EOS 1V SLR, 580ex flash, and 5D DSLR shooter. Prime lens only shooter.

    I ended up with a 7 rather than a 1 because they're a little less expensive. There's a reasonably priced 1n in the classifieds right now.

    ...on what, and why?
    “The photographer must determine how he wants the finished print to look before he exposes the negative.
    Before releasing the shutter, he must seek 'the flame of recognition,' a sense that the picture would reveal
    the greater mystery of things...more clearly than the eyes see."
    ~Edward Weston, 1922.

    I would say the F1-N closely followed by the T90 and EF.
