Re: Build quality of cameras

I suspect today's cameras are probably tougher than they look. I accidently knocked my Nikon D90 off a coffee table a few years back and it fell unto a hardwood floor. The camera still works just fine. And, when I got my first DSLR, a Sony Alpha 100, I accidently slammed it into a metal gate post while rushing for a ferry boat in Prince Edward Island (the camera was on a strap around my shoulder and swung right into the post). It made a sickening clunk when it hit, but it worked for years afterwards with no problems.
