if yes please use it and be done with it. Your contax went on working after contax's death so what?

Those contax's were much more durable and long lived than modern digital cameras. You did notice that the contax shot film, and most types of film are gone. Without film they are worthless and can not work no matter how durable.

Because they were worth servicing... The shutter life was not rated anything like the life time of a modern interchangeable lens camera. So you serviced them at times - that's what kept them working

Plus you don't shoot as fast, or take nearly as many pictures with film. People were not taking 1000 shots per outing back in the film days.
