Shall I tell you my story about my FE that I've told five million times here over the years? Yes? Right then.

So I was outside shooting at night in the dead of winter. It had been warm enough to melt snow earlier on in the day, but it got cold enough later that the puddles turned to ice. I had the camera on a tripod for long exposure. I went to go grab something out of the way, then walked back. On the way, I slipped on the ice and grabbed the tripod. Camera fell onto the pavement hard, as did I. Camera was fine, but the pavement had a small gouge in it.

I would trust *any* of those bodies to just keep going. They don't make them like that anymore. They should start. I'd be more apt to spend more on a camera that is built like the FE than the current plastic crap offered nowadays.
