    Yeah you guys are right. It'll cost me $125 to have it fixed. All things considered that's not too bad.

    Now we're talking! Or a 1N.

    Hahaha I would love to do that and maybe someday I will, but the 1v is still commanding a pricenhigh enough that I'd have to sell something first if i wanted it.

    You should be aware, then, that the EOS 1 and 1N are not built any nicer than the 3. I've had all 3 and the difference between them is limited to a little fake leather on the non-grip side of the 1N. If you want something nicer than the 3, you'll need to shell out for a 1V.

    Ah well, that makes sense then I've had the pleasure of shooting with the 1V so I know how nice it is to work with, I've just never had the pleasure of OWNING one . That's not to say I didn't like my EOS 3 bodies. They were very dependable and took a beating with minor injuries. I think though realistically, when I do shoot film, I want to take my time and make the shot count, using FD gear would likely be a better facilitator to this purpose!

    I appreciate all the responses though guys! Never hurts to nerd out and talk cameras every now and again

    I finally gave up on fixing the T90, since I could not really justify the expense (I now own only one lens in FD mount, mounted on my newly cla'ed AE1P) and the price would have been dissuasive...

    It's going to cost me $125 to repair my T90, which is double what I paid for it in the first place. I'm pretty bummed about it because I didn't even get to enjoy it before having to send it in for repair.

    I have some FD lenses that I really quite like at this point, and they work really well on my Micro 4/3 system so I'll probably hang onto it, but I will keep my eyes peeled for a nice 1n or 1v. I know someday I'll find a bargain, but I'm in no rush at this point.

    Abram ,

    Did you check www.keh.com and www.adorama.com used gear department.

    I think every EOS will come very cheap.

    I looked to the keh and saw Canon 1 costs 200 , Canon 1n costs 250 or more , Canon 600 , 700 , 800 costs 30 dollars. Only Bodies.
    Canon 3 costs around 300 dollars.

    Best ,
