I think it has more to do with batteries being disposable. Sure they are rechargeable, but depending on usage, most batteries will have to be replaced within 2-5 years, in line with the camera body's life cycle. By the time by D70 gave up the ghost at 4 years old, I could only get about 100-150 pictures on a battery charge vs 300-400 when it (and the battery) were new.

People have been using 10, 20 and 40 year old lenses regularly on modern cameras, with a few caveats for the 40-year-olds.

Lenses outlive bodies. Batteries barely survive them.

Wow, your D70 only lasted 4 years? How many shutter cycles did you have when it died?

Seems to me DSLR bodies should last longer than that!
