Good Points
Simple, sturdy

Bad Points
No longer made, lenses no longer supported by manufacturer, parts no longer available, so-so reliability record

General Comments
Had an AE-1 years ago that I eventually traded for a Nikon. Canon's lenses for this mount are very good, but you'll only find them on the used shelf as Canon obsoleted this entire lens mount (not the first time they've abandoned older Canon owners). For this reason and because of reliability issues I switched to Nikon.

Only buy this camera if it's in excellent working condition and you have access to lenses, because there is no parts support from Canon for this old dog, and lenses for the mount are climbing in price as their rarity increase.
