    the hardware might last 3 or more years............ I doubt the technology will last more than 12 months .............

    Talking specifically photography, I have a D70... got it since it was launched and it is still with me today though I use my D300 more now but for about 5 yrs, the D70 was my main body. Like all things it is not the products that fail us most of the time..... but it is the user and their thinking that is the weakness.

    I have my old NIkon FG and it is still working mechanically.
