I think you'll enjoy the F1n. I owned the EF, AE1, A1, F1n, and T90 in the FD system. Sold them all when Canon changed their mount and bought an EOS 1n and EOS 3. Sold them when I went digital with the 10D, 5D (classic), 30D, 40D, and 7D. I still have the 5Dc, 40D and 7D. Personally I believe that the T90 was the best film camera I ever owned. So advanced for its time ..... precursor to Canon digital SLR's. I also enjoyed playing around with the eye controlled focus (ecf) of the EOS 3 and I don't understand why they don't try ecf on some of their digital cameras. Certainly they should have been able to refine that system by this time.
man.... now you're making me want a T90. I'm gonna have to start looking and see what I can find. I play around with the ecf on my EOS 3 occasionally too and I have really mixed results. Sometimes it works perfectly, sometimes it is way off. I'm guessing that is why we haven't seen it return.... but I do agree with all of the tech they have in cameras now, I'm sure that if they devoted some resources to it, they could improve it. Who knows, maybe they are... 5DmkIV with ecf?
Still want one of these...15 years of wanting one...must resist...
Is it true, btw, that even with the motor drive turned off, you can use the motor drive's shutter button to fire the F1N?
Hmmm..... I don't know. I"ll have to try.
