    My OM-2n in a way - because the accessories keep breaking instead.
    So far in a period of 4 months:
    1) The (admittedly weak) hotshoe.
    2) An attached B+W KR1.5 filter dismantled itself in a suitcase in the skies over Germany. May have suffered due to temperature variations in the hold.
    3)A pristine, original metal Olympus lens hood completely buckled when i dropped it and the attached camera onto concrete. The body itself came to rest against my shoe and escaped damage, mechanical or cosmetic. Interestingly enough so did a "plastic fantastic" Cokin filter. Anyhow it proves the merit of lens hoods on cameras and, i suppose, crumple zones on cars.

    Overall my OM-2n appears to be "the one who gets away with it". I can only hope this trend continues.

    For me, it's a toss up between my Topcon Super DM, purchased in '78 and my Leica IIIc bought in '68. The light meter is still ticking in the Topcon and the little Leica just had it's second CLA since I purchased it and neither of them are "shelf queens". Wonder how long my digital Pentax will last?

    Post-apocalyptic times will be characterized by the presence of cockroaches as the only form of life and Yashica FX3 as the only surviving 35mm SLR....

    For me a Nikon F with Photomic Ftn meter head.

    Minolta SRT 101(passed no DNA to the 2 crappy X-700s I owned that died from strokes)

    Nikon FE(have 3 but the oldest looks like a retired champ pitbull)

    Mamiya 645 Super(medium ugly but overhauled and purring)

    Nikon 801s(their plasticky skin clads a very tough camera)

    Nikon F3(early DE-2 model, oddly pristine, rebuilt by Nikon.ca with some of their remaining parts 6 years ago)

    I like this

    Lets see,
    I've busted the meter dial on my 645AFD (not sure how, i've barely even used it)
    The d-pad on the back of my main F100 sometimes doesn't work
    The viewfinder diopter is busted on my 2nd F100
    The door is broken on my FE
    I've busted the viewfinder on my D700 once
    and my D70 is infested with mites on the inside

    My girlfriend has my E-P1, and it's got a dent in it (no biggie) and the blue ring on the front of the 17mm came off once (nothing that a little loctite won't fix)

    so yeah...pretty much ALL my cameras have had one thing or another happen to them

    The Pentax Spotmatics are very reliable and sturdy.
