    But for the price of a Reflex you can get a great lot of FD-mount bodies. Unlikely they all would die the same time, if at all.

    Also, Canon had decades of development into cameras like the F-1N, whereas the Reflex is an unknown quantity.

    The Reflex camera mounts do not retain the auto diaphragm mechanism for any of the lenses, so it's stop down metering and exposure, which made the camera design a non-starter for me. It's a 1950s design.

    And at least an automatic diaphragm yield even the early, mechanical FL-mount bodies.
