Week 227 - Canon AE1
This was a recent charity shop find, it came with the 50mm f1.4 lens and the much sought after 135mm f2.0 lens. The AE1 was made between 1976 and 1984 and was apparently the first SLR to use a micro-processor to control the exposure system. Over a million were made, and they seem to be quite common. I've never used a Canon SLR before, and this one seems quiet and efficient.
