I was totalling the use of the Nikon bodies at my magazine , and discoverd that the oldest, an FM bought new in 1981, has averaged over a roll a day since that time, about 262,800 cycles of the outsourced copal-s shutter, which is still accurate. The meter also still functions perfectly. Apart from having the seals replaced, this camera has never been serviced! is this normal, or is this one from The Twilight Zone?
