General Comments
I've owned two Canon F1n bodies (one of them AE) for around 20 years now, and have found them superb rugged all-weather cameras, ideally suited to the ski-touring, mountaineering, and wildlife photography interests I pursue. In February I dropped one (for the first time ever) onto cobbled paving from waist height when I slipped on ice. Iv'e yet to find a scratch on it, and as expected, it is still fully functional! I can't see me ever parting with them, or going digital, unless film disappears.
