I still have an EOS-3 that I bought brand new in 2002, & it has a roll of Provia 100F that has been in the camera now for 2 years, mainly because I only use it on sunny days. I only use my 24-105 or my 17-40 lenses right now with it - sometimes my 50mm 1.8 as well. I also have an Epson 4990 scanner that I bought about 7 years ago & it still works fine. If you scan your slides or negs, you'll need something to clean up the images because there is still some noise even in ISO 100 film compared to what I get in my 50D or my 30D. The EOS-3 is a Beast in my opinion & focuses Very fast! Enjoy it!
