recently I had an opportunity to buy v inexpensively Canon EOS 1n. this would be a change from currently used A1, Motor MA and various lenses. after careful consideration I could not find a single advantage of 1n over my A1. don't get me wrong, there are soem neat bells & whistles such as auto bracketing and auto focus. if you are looking for superb optics look no further than L line of FD lenses. OK, nothing beats Leica quality!!!
