    of course, after certain shutter count, I believe the shop may consider putting it as display set.. if it's not a v.high end body.

    Pls read my post carefully...I said it is NOT UNREASONABLE for a camera to have some amount of clicks out of box, but there is a point of too many clicks to really consider it as brand new. If a camera has a shutter count of 100 out of the box, it is perfectly fine. BUT if you are paying full retail price for a camera with a shutter count of over 1000, then are you really getting a demo unit or brand new unit? The issue that I am harping on is not whether the "brand new" camera you got has got 0 shutter count or not. What I am trying to say is that is it really fair for us to be paying the brand new retail price for a camera that has a shutter count as high as some used set.

    Do not get too upset with people because your title is really looking for strange comments/responses.

    well i doubt the car mileage thing is a good example... you dont need trigger the shutter at all to move a camera, but the wheels turn when you move the car.

    Only display set have this problem.

    Imagine everyday 10 customers molested and click the shutter of the display set.

    You cannot expect it to remain a virgin

    That is also why display set are cheaper than brand new camera.

    The in body flash throw is also affected.

    Instead of the usual throw of 4 - 5 meters ...

    The flash light can only reach 1 - 2 meters.
