Any idea of how many shots you've taken with each? I used Olympus OM cameras for 15 or so years, but went through four bodies in that time. They just quit clicking at about 10,000-15,000 shots. Great cameras otherwise. I used Yashicamat 124G cameras for 2-1/4, and never got more than 1500 frames out of any of them before the shutters quit. That said, I used an original (1971) Canon F1 for nearly 15 years with no problems and probably as many shots as I now have on a four year old K20D, but because I did a lot of outdoor winter shooting, I had it cleaned and de-lubed every November, and cleaned and lubed again in March.

Good point!

Another point is that its the survivors that still are left. Those cameras that failed are gone or in some collection where no one uses them.

BTW - I also have a collection of old cameras. Most works. But ... some dont.
