Again, these cameras are decades old and most can’t even be serviced! As an analog shooter, this concerns me, especially because the prices have went up ridiculously because of this.

You have no idea seriously! there are enough people out there, who could service Film Cameras. It seems you're just here to troll around the Film Photography Forum.

FYI, Good Luck to find a specific Card Reader to read your SD, CF, XQD Card, etc. from 30+ years further away into the Future ! Film could still being developed, and could even being printed from Negatives, even after Decades.

And if you might be old enough, you do knew exactly the Circumstances, when you do have a Backup from xyz month/year, but it is damaged, no more readable, recoverable, and the RAW Files are all lost with digital.

No offense.

The funny part is in the O.P where he says

"Besides, let me just share some current prices of some random cameras I’ve seen on German eBay"

And then specifically ( at random apparently !) selects the few most over priced , over hyped up cameras going !

And ignores the other 99.999% of used film cameras on the market that are in good condition and full working order , and are reliable as well .

Silly .

Exactly.  And that tesla Guy listed only 3 Film Cameras, some infamous Celebrities are being using. Seriously Silly.

Good Light.
