And, seeing as there are two major film bodies, I would also include the FD system in this discussion. This post is mainly because the Nikon people posted their Which Nikon film bodies still work....and I though there was some pretty good Nikon info in it. But, I don't shoot Nikon, and ain't switching now........so I thought I'd see what the general thinking on this was. The Nikon people that knew what they were talking about didn't talk about necessarily their own camera, but a more across the board discussion. Meaning, yeah, every model has working cams now...but I'm interested in the ones that as a whole model group have passed the longevity test almost all across the board. If that makes no sense, see the Nikon post and Lex's discusion. For ref I own the Canon Elan II and the Canon F-1...and am thinking about buying another EOS Canon body in the possible future as I'm not convinced the Elan II is a keeper.
