Whilst I don't doubt EOS are great cameras, they still lack the split-image non-darkened viewfinder and the ability to attach old manual lenses with an aperture ring (again, something I could control faster than using the 'new' design).

There was a Canon EF-mount camera that used a split image screen: the Canon EF-M.   You can also  use M42, Nikon F, Olympus OM, Contax/Yashica, Leica R, Pentax K, and some Topcon/Exacta lenses on EOS (and the EF-M) film bodies. Some lenses may have mirror clearance issues and K lenses need the aperture lever removed.
