I can see your point of view.
But I've done some cost analysis on film in the past. While the particulars will vary, I found that the cost of buying the film plus the cost of paying for processing worked out to somewhere around $15 per roll.
Shoot 10 rolls of film... there goes $150.
You can see that it wouldn't take much before that becomes a the greater financial expense. The cost of "buying" the film camera is lower... but the cost of "using" the film camera is ultimately higher (unless you vary rarely use it.)

You can get Canon EF 35-135mm USM Lens for around $90 or less on ebay. Or if you want wider version then get the EF 28-105mm f/3.5-4.5 USM for the same price.
