This was made back in the says when cameras were a precision-made & made to last 25 yrs - today's plastic lot [CaNikax's + others] aren't made like that

given that they'll be hopelessly obsolete in 5 years, the camera co's figure they don't need to build 'em to last 25... but i still have the little old Pentax ME Super i bought back in the days before auto-focus lenses... needs a tune-up and a battery, but otherwise works fine! too bad i no longer have any desire to use film...

C'mon folks. Cameras are not obsolete. Photographers are.
