I've had decent results with a 35-70 and a 100-300, both from that era. I use them mostly with manual focus though...

There wont be any EOS lenses from the earlier 80's since they weren't introduced until 87. But you can use some adapters with the FD lenses.

What are you looking for exactly? I just picked up an FD 600mm to use on my 5DII, not a bad deal if you don't mind the all manual aspect. I have been seeing both 300 and 400 f/2.8 FD lenses on Ebay lately and have been contemplating picking one up, there are a few people that will machine the back of the lens to fit an EOS mount with the proper register length. I found a guy who sells a thin adapter with no glass but it only allows infinity focus on the 600 and 800mm lenses. Beyond that the prices seem to be coming back up for the more desirable fast primes and the tilt shifts.

just curious as I have come across some older stuff yet to go thru them and see what is in there other than the ae-1. was wondering if there was an older lens that made it bones back then in portrait or landscape shots and hoping I come across one when I get the 2 bags of gear..thanks for your input

It's probably better to do a "hey I have this XXX lens is it worth anything?" thread instead...

Any lens with an EF mount will fit.
I you have a lens with an FD mount, you will need an FD to EF adapter.
As has already been said, EF lenses first hit the market in the late '80's.
