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...

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.
