Exactly - the last Nikon (and lenses) I bought served me well for almost 15 years! My relationship with Fuji feels like an upgrade rollercoaster. I don't have confidence that the lenses they're now charging £1,000 for will still be useful in 5 years' time.

Just sad that newer generation Nikon lenses use lead-free solder which basically gives them a 10-year life expectancy (hence the 10 with 2 arrows on the lens). Not sure how conservative that is in practice. But it's essentially been one of the main factors that so far have kept me from making big investments in Nikon glass
