The age of disposables...?
In reply to fad, Jan 31, 2013

Perhaps that is the way Nikon views the digital bodies they have been producing for the last 15 years or so? - Despite their initial cost(s). Likewise, perhaps the parts for those products are equally (or more rapidly) dismissed as being obsolete.

I say this tongue in cheek as my trusty classic (Film) Nikon bodies sit on a shelf and wait to be picked up and fired. They keep on working despite their ages (some >40 years old).

IMHO, in this age of "high tech" I wonder if my D3s will last as well as my 47 year old Nikkormat FT or my 30 year old FG and if not - why?

I'm not looking for an answer to this question but rather just kind of pointing out that as we become more reliant on technology perhaps there is an inverse correlation on what we can expect. No, I'm not making an excuse for poor service or limited supplies of parts but just an observation.
