Again, these cameras are decades old and most can’t even be serviced!

Says who? I own several 35mm cameras. I've had two that I wanted repaired and had no problem finding a reputable shop (and both repairs were <$100). There are plenty of "donor" cameras for parts. I'm finally getting around to getting my 45-year-old Pentax KX serviced and again, no problem finding an expert in that particular camera. One of the advantages of the new interest in film photography is a new generation of repair techs -- yes, young people are learning how to fix old cameras.

Just shoot and enjoy. Oh, and if you spend some time on camera-wiki.org you'll find lots of film cameras that haven't been "discovered" and are still very reasonably priced. My last three purchases were a Minolta 400si body for $12, a Maxxum 5 with kit lens for $16 and a Ricoh KR-10SE with two lenses for $35.
