Hi all,

I am considering buying a Canon EF, and while I am somewhat familiar with the technical specifications of the camera (what I can find on the web - itsa lot less popular than the A series, it seems) I would like to hear from people who have or had one of these. Your first hand impressions will be priceless to me in allowing me to make a more educated decision - and there is no substitute for experience! I already have a AE-1, and wanted another inexpensive fd mount body. I decided that this would be more interesting than owning two AE's, besides, I liked the rugged, old-school looks, the mirror lock feature and the fact that apparently, it has a very accurate shutter and meter. Of course it takes the dreaded mercury batteries... but, the bottom line is:

What do you guys think?
