Technically, it doesn't, but if you look through the viewfinder, as you roll the shutter dial, what is displayed, is the f/stop in the LED display. I find it works just liked aperture priority if I think of it that way.

And to answer the OP's original question - I would shoot the AE-1P everyday before any of the others listed, (I am biased, I have been shooting an AE-1P since 1983. Before that, an AE-1).

The A-1 and it's miniscule shutter/aperture dial is my biggest gripe on what is otherwise a nice camera. The earlier cameras are just flat awkward to use for my style of shooting.
