People always whine about some cameras not being 'professional' enough. You would think people on this board would be more welcoming considering film is no longer the in thing.. but we get more of the same.
I had a Canon AE1 which was reliable and took great pictures. Then I "moved up" to an A1 which had random electrical issues and an F1N which the film take-up spool would catch the film sprockets wrong and eat the film.
And finally I switched completely to Olympus. In may ways I miss my AE1 and I feel that people trash-talking many entry-level cameras are misleading. Many entry-level cameras of previous decades are more than adequate.
