We photograph every individual used camera that we sell. You will receive the camera in the photos. Please inspect photos closely for evidence of cosmetic condition.
The A-1 accepts any lens with the Canon FD breech-lock mount (introduced in 1971) or Canon New FD pseudo-bayonet mount (sometimes called the FDn mount, introduced 1979). It can also use most earlier FL lenses and some even older R (or Canomatic) series lenses, albeit with reduced functionality. This camera is not compatible with Canon's EF bayonet mount autofocus lenses (introduced in 1987). During the late 1970s and 1980s, there were approximately 55 Canon FD lenses available for purchase.
