I bought a used EOS 5 (the European/Japanese version of the A2E) as a second film body, backing-up my EOS 1. It is responsive and intuitive. The images are fantastic (as one would expect), and the body has a definite feel of quality to it. I don't use the eye controlled auto focus feature. It feels a bit "gimmick-y" to me. Luckily, it's easy enough to disable. The film rewind is eerily quiet. As a matter of fact, the first time I came to the end of a roll, I had no idea it was rewinding until I saw the numbers changing! All in all, it is an excellent value (particularly if you pick up a used one) and highly recommended.
