Answer to your question is, ‘Yes’ we can. Use Sigma FD lenses.
As we know Canon AV-1 has electronically controlled AE (Automatic Exposure) & has a Canon Breech-lock lens mount.
Original generation of FD lenses featured a silver locking ring at the base. Only that locking ring turns to lock the lens to the camera body; the lens body remains still.
In the newer lens system which was introduced with this camera, the user has to line up the red dot on the lens, with the red dot on the camera and simply turned the whole lens clockwise until it clicked into place.
Note: FD-mount cameras could use FL lenses in stop-down metering mode.
Thank you & have a nice day.
