I've picked up 3 Canon EOS 300's, and 1 Elan II, for an average price of about $10 each, in excellent condition. I have OM-1's and Olympus glass, so I use them on the Canons with adapters, and it works perfectly. When a Canon body dies, (only 1 in 4 years), it goes into a junk drawer, and I buy another 1 or 2. CR2 batteries are cheap in bulk. A good, cheap, LIGHT, setup.
