FM3A & F6, boutique Nikon products; Why not a retro DSLR?

The FM3A was a labor of love, not cobbled-together from available stock of spare parts, and while I do not know how quickly the available stock sold back in its day, it shows Nikon has a precedent for a retro-SLR. Though I know less about them, Nikon also released at least one run of their old rangefinder camera, long after the originals had been discontinued.

While is is not retro, Nikon is still makinga few F6 film SLRs each year. This shows that Nikon is still making a "boutique" model for the faithful. Nikon is not completely a mass-market manufacturer.

I wear a badge and pistol, and, primarily with 7D cameras, with 10-22mm and 100mm Macro L lenses, shoot evidentiary images at night, which incorporates elements of portrait, macro, still life, landscape, architecture, PJ, and occasional action.
