The lenses for the AE-1 program are FD mount. I use these exclusively. I'd go with the 28 2.8, the 135 2.8 and the minolta 50 1.4...assuming that the optics are clean; some of the photos make the lenses look like they're in pretty rough shape.

I also prefer the new-FD mount over the original silver FD breech-lock mechanism because I've found that the nFD are very easy to swap on the run, whereas the original silver breech-lock (like the ones in the photos) are harder for me to work with.
