I am considering buying a Nikon, since the sensor in my Pentax istDL just died and they don't make that part any more. Someone in a shop told me not to expect the sensor in ANY MODEL DSLR made by ANY MANUFACTURER to last more than 5-6 years (2 years for a point-and-shoot). I could live with that if I thought the replacement part would still be available. How good is Nikon's support for legacy hardware (as the computer people might say)? And is your experience consistent with the dismal forecast of the dealer I talked with?
