   ...  Now if we're talking Leica, now that's different. Their pro
   cameras - R6.2, R7, and M6 are all great, but the R line is no more
   reliable than the Minolta pro models. And none of them are as
   relaible as an EOS1n or F4/5...

Eric, I'm curious about where you get your data here.  I don't know of
any reliability surveys of cameras, whereas (for example) automobile
reliability is very well documented by J.D. Powers, Consumer Reports,
and other firms.  Are you just giving your opinion and maybe the
opinions of your friends in this case, or do you know of some serious
work to figure out which cameras are reliable and which aren't?
