    Get the n, it has some updates over the regular elan 7. Do you really need the eye control focus? I have it on my EOS-3 and I can't say that Ive ever used it besides to test it out, it works but not all that great.

    EOS 3, EOS 1 / 1N

    The 7 is still a great cam. If you like it, you might be able to find an Elan 2e as well

    Check you local places for used cams. If you have a Samys or Calumet around, B&H has a used dept etc, also the buy/sell area of www.fredmiranda.com
