... FILM IS NOT DEAD!
No not yet but it is dying. A coworker's son works at Costco photo say once in a blue moon someone brings in a roll of film for processing.
My first camera was a Canon AE-1, by 1981 I upgraded to A-1, and by 85 I have a New F-1. In 2001 I sold all my FD system on ebay for more than I paid and switched to EF system. I sold my EOS 1V body a few years ago so no more film for me. Film was great when you don't have a choice, but now I'll go digital until something better is out.
I disagree... I don't think it will die. In fact I see a huge resurgence in film among all of my professional shooting friends. Almost all of them I know are shooting film now in some capacity, most are shooting it for personal projects and some having begun to incorporate it into their professional workflow. I'm not saying that I think it will overtake digital, don't get me wrong, but it ain't dying.

Richard -- I've had the A-1, AE-1 Program, AV-1, AT-1, F-1n, then finally two T90s that I used up until I had to switch (kicking and screaming) to the EOS system (which I now love). The T90s were the best of the FD bodies, IMO. The F-1n was always more rugged and modular, but the T90 more advanced technically (even if it feels plastic-y in comparison). I recommend giving one a try -- you already have the lenses!
Richard, get yourself a T90, because I promise you will not touch that F1n after! The T90 feels so good in the hand (certainly better than any one of my 5D series cameras).
I've already started looking.
