There are even a few manual focus bodies available new. I've not studied the market extensively, particularly not in Canon mount, so I don't know how common these are, or if the big names (Canon, Minolta, Nikon, Pentax, etc.) still make them, or just the lesser or secondary brands (Vivitar, Phoenix, Zenit, etc.). Is your (hanaa's) husband set on Canon for some reason?
