#18. "RE: past... present... future???"

Al,
Your mention of "war stories" of Nikon toughness reminded me of a story I read many years ago about a Western photojournalist who snuck a couple of Nikons into the Soviet Union during the height of the cold war--submerged in barrel full of water. After disassembling and drying the cameras and lenses out, they worked just fine. I'd like to see someone try that with a modern camera and AF lens.
