Interested in buying an old 35mm prime lens for my film camera that would fit and EF mount. I've found plenty of FD mounts and plenty of newer EF lenses around $200-300. Would like somethign in between if anyone has something. Does not have to be Canon brand.

I would not buy Canon FD or Minolta MD lenses as they will need a very expensive modification on order to work with any Canon EOS camera. (film or digital) There are cheap adapters available, but they have cheap glass optics that ruin the image quality.
Old Manual Focus lenses from Nikon, Pentax, and Olympus can use a very inexpensive adapter with Canon EOS cameras and still give great results.
