Re: Nikon offered film cameras with Titanium bodies

I don't think its been mentioned, but the metal bodies will hold up better with big lenses (i.e. 300/2.8 type) It doesn't take much to rip the mount of my d90 right of the front of the mirror cage. This usually ruins the camera.

Also I disagree with the old mechanical was reliable and modern electronic is fragile.

Most failure of pro digital gear are mechanical failures due to extreme usage rates.
