Not building any more film cameras? Those film cameras are built to  last. 
I know people shooting film with 1940s Eyemos
and 1930s Mitchells.  Wonder where all those digital Genesis and Origins 
will be in five  years.
Maybe Ebay.

I agree here as well.
I don't know about anyone else, but I'm getting really sick and tired of  
all this digital snarkiness.
I'm also waiting for the day when a modern digital video camera-- and face  
it, that's what it is, video -- will physically last as long as the most 
average  Super 8 or 16 one, let alone 35mm.
And when they don't-- which they won't-- will their discardability and  
obsolescence then be seen as a philosophical virtue?  Probably.
