Thinking of a Canon Eos film camera but need help

Some may say I'm beyond help, but here goes.

I have three gorgeous Zeiss Lenses in the Rollei QBM mount (35mm Distagon, 50mm 1.8 Planar and 85mm Sonnar), which I currently shoot with a Rolleiflex SL35. The metering in that is dead, and I prefer metered shooting with an SLR. So they rarely get used.

The QBM lenses can be converted to an EOS mount, which I think is probably sensible to do, but as a lifelong Nikon shooter I have no knowledge of the Canon EOS film range and wonder if people have a recommendation for an EOS film body which is reliable, not too big or heavy and reasonably inexpensive, plus able to focus manually easily via the viewfinder.

Help gratefully sought!
Film amateur with a few rangefinders - Leica III, M2/M3, Werra 3 and Zeiss Super Ikonta 534/16 medium format.

Apart from that have a Rolleiflex 3.5F, the odd Minolta XD7, Hasselblad 500cm, a Topcon Super D and an Intrepid 5x4 large format (not the half of it but I am clearing them out, honest).

I do all my own black and white developing at home.
