When I started shooting film again, I too wanted a body that took my EF lenses. I got an Elan II for $50, which was mint, but there was goo on the shutter. I cleaned it off with a bit of alcohol and WD40, and now it works perfectly. It's light, even with the battery grip so you can use rechargeable AA's, quiet, and you can buy them for a song. I think I'm going to get another couple as backups and look for a good "3" in the near future.
