Just keep in mind that an AE-1 is an FD mount manual focus camera. If you have modern canon gear, then you will not be able to share your lenses between the two without adaptors. There are EOS Film cameras out there that are decently cheap and take the modern lenses with auto-focus abilities.

Just something to consider before jumping.

Also, in my view if you are going to go for film, I say go medium format. You pay a little more, but you can get a lot more out of it. Or large format if you're overly keen.
