    personally i don care unless it is very high let say >20k on entry level dSLR or >100k for pro body... I don find much difference between one with lets say 2k and 5k.

    True. T/S should just save up and buy a new camera with the warranty and stuff...

    With Digital, I am amazed that the shutter count goes up so fast..:0 It just shows how well used the camera is...

    from my average shooting rate... if everything goes as expected... 50k for entry lvl body, i will take 2-3yrs at least to reach that...
    currently 13k in about 7mths...

    The shutter is a rough indication of use/abuse, but is highly dependent on the type of photography. A landscape photographer may have a very low count, but have a camera that has gone through sand, sun, sea-spray, etc, while a studio photog may have a very high count, but have camera internals very clean.

    not really expensive changing shutter. So dont care about shutter count and just shoot peacefully
