Here we have a gorgeous condition, fully functional Canon AE-1 camera with a very nice Vivitar 35-70mm F/3.5 multi-coated zoom lens, strap, and battery.
This camera is fully functional, and ready to produce another lifetime of fantastic photos.
Mechanically excellent, everything here functions as it should. The film compartment, pressure plate, mirror box, battery compartment, focusing screen, pentaprism, and viewfinder are all clean. The dials, knobs, and levers all actuate exactly as they should. The light meter is fully functional, and all shutter speeds are accurate.
The lens is similarly excellent, with no damage or mechanical issues. The glass elements are free of fungus, balsam separation, cleaning marks, scratches, or other optical aberrations. The aperture blades are oil free and actuate beautifully. The focus ring spins with nice weight, and the aperture ring clicks with mechanical precision.
The included zoom lens runs from 35-70mm. This makes it a versatile lens capable of shooting many styles of photography. It can be used equally well for landscapes, city shooting, architectural work, standard photography, street photography, wildlife, nature, portraits, and more. A maximum aperture of F/3.5 allows for capable subject isolation and bokeh. Stopped down the lens becomes incredibly sharp. Flaring, ghosting, and chromatic aberration are well-checked. Essentially, the lens is an excellent performer for very low cost.
Cosmetically the camera is in excellent condition with normal signs of light wear commensurate with age (camera is over 40 years old, but still exceptionally beautiful).The AE-1 is the camera that made Canon a powerhouse amongst SLR producers, and signaled their intent as a world-class camera maker.
This camera is perfect for anyone, from the new student to the advanced photographer. It can do everything any shooter will ask of it.
