Default Canon Elan IIE or Elan 7E??? Help!!!

I'm about to buy one or the other. I know the 7E is the newer model.... But which one is better? I'm an amateur photographer just starting to get back into it. I really need some advice. I love the elan line. In highschool I was going to get the Elan iie. Please help!!! Thanks! Also, what woiuld be the best general lens to buy along with the camera since they are both being sold as body only?

I have elan II and am quite happy with it, never used 7 but apparently it's better so you pay more, however quite frankly I doubt most photographers will notice any difference. E stands for for eye focusing doesn't it? bs if you ask me. I paid for mine something like $45, can't go wrong with that, as far as the lens, well it's difficult to suggest anything as everyone has different need and desires, but 50mm 1.8 prime (about $100) is the most popular, and worth the money.
