it's not like having the sump drained on your car...

The issue gets better over time.

This seems to be the general consensus, but one thing that bothers me, not having any engineering experience, is that if it does get better, does this mean that there is no longer enough lubricant left in the shutter mechanism for it to work effectively for the very long term?

if it was the case you'd end up with a very short life.. like an engine wouldn't last more than a short trip down the block if it all drained out.

There is no 'container' in the shutter mechanism; so you could argue that when the spots stop flying it would now the same amount of lubricant as those that were just bought new without just the right amount.

It would be ironic if those that had some excess had a longer shutter life, wouldn't it.

My guess is as good as yours..
