kinda miss my canon A1 35mm. i went auto focus in the early 90`s and sold the A1 and all the gear that went with it to get into a eos system, played with the eos system , went to a nikon for a while, went from that back to a manual focus nikon f4 and fm2 at a time when i was playing with digital. i bought another A1 prior to buying my First real digital camera, which was the G2 canon. wasnt really very long before i sold off all my 35mm gear and went to a Canon Pro 1, which i loved as well, but i had the first A1 for 10 years and have a large box of photo`s from those years. digital is just not the same as theres no large boxes of accumulated photo`s anymore, just bits and bytes on the hard drive. i do miss the a1 and really do miss some aspects of the 35mm format.
