AlexZ - In my early years of Leica M use I shot over 10,000 rolls through three bodies (bought used) with only 2 rf alignments and the self timer spring on my early production M3. No question these were the kings of durability and set the standard for all other camera makers. Thsi kind of quality was also typical of Nikon in both their FR's and slr's. I'm still using a mid 60's F, Nikkormat FTN and lenses and an early f2 with no problems to date. I can't even guess how many rolls have been through these. This kind of quality is what I've grown to expect and demand particularly from $3,000+ bodies and lenses.
