why wouldn't you get an EOS film body just to be able to use the same lenses on your DSLR?

for the o.p. or anyone else...just do a completed listings search on ebay to see what the value is of whatever old camera/lens you've got lying around, and decide if it's worth the hassle or not

well it came w/ 2 lenses (also the shoe-mount canon flash) similar to what I currently use and so far I like the feel to it. . just need to develop my roll of color and then finish my rolls of B&W. . but cost was a factor really in the end.

Also so far I've gotten huge feedback from my handful of collectors and some of my Dad's (Jim Cromartie, praising my choice.
