advice wanted on EOS and T-70 - Photography

The 'T' series has a different lens mount. I would take advantage of the EOS if it was just for the availability of lenses (right through to current lenses). Trevor C.

    T70 is manual focus and takes older FD lenses. Much better you get an EOS
    camera that will take current EF autofocus lenses. Cheers - Rab.

    Do you have a Photo Kevron near you? Here they are cleaning out their stock.
    Ex Demo EOS 500n and 28-80 $299 with full warranty.

    Pay them extra to keep the 28-80. :) Get her a 50 f1.8 or a 50 f1.4,
    will cost even more
