I miss my Canon A2E.  :(

This one on PropertyRoom.com includes the accessory grip 8). But it also includes a cheap lens ???.

Now that I think about it...
I don't miss the scratched negatives and the dirty negative prints.  :)

I still have my EOS 5 (non-US A2e) and EOS 3 - I miss them but I haven't touched them in years because I'm with compupix on this:

Now that I think about it...
I don't miss the scratched negatives and the dirty negative prints.  :)


I'm still trying to find a good way to get all my old B&W negatives scanned cleanly.

It's a lot of work:
1. selecting the worthwhile images
2. cleaning
3. scanning
4. touching up

Other than the scanning step, I don't see how that process is any different from digital photographs captured on a digital camera.

Oh, perhaps you forgot to include the biggest issue :P which is the developing, and the ~$10-$15 per roll it costs to purchase the film and develop it after. Probably more now with the increased prices of film.
