The shutter count is only indicative of how much the camera has been used. The life span of a shutter is normally around 100-150k... but some have gone past the 150k. So... even if it is 25k, there should be a lot of life left in it. Just do an estimated count of shots you would take a month and you will find that it would last you a long time. Having said that, there are also shutters that would die less than 10k.

usually for dslr with higher shutter actuation count, the price would be marked down as it meant a replacement of shutter unit soon.

yes, i think it's one of the key factor whether one would considering buying the 2nd hand dslr or not. hope that helps :)

i think the time taken to reach that shutter count shld also be considered. i.e. 15k over period of 3yrs VS 10k over a period of 6mths.

juz my newbie point of view. :)
