Yeah but would you feel that way if it was a car? Friends are into "beat is better" too with cameras. Not me. It's not prissiness but practicality that convinces me to get the newest, cleanest, lowest-mileage cameras I can afford. Old but NOS or little used will live longer trouble-free than old and nearly dead. I want to spend $ on film and prints, not repairs. Brassy just doesn't speak to me. Shelve this tchotchke and get a camera that works.
