I used various Canon SLRs regularly from 1972 to 2003 with only one fault, a metering failure with an F1 when it was twelve years old.
F1 and F1n are very good cameras but still expensive to acquire, compared to the average second-hand film cameras on the market. Considering the FTb, TLb and TX, they need mercury batteries to work with them, unless you use a separate lightmeter or the F16 rule.
For having used several systems, I just realized Canon FD isn't my style, although the FD lenses are just fantastic and very much affordable nowadays.
