I have seen many posts on Buy and Sell that advertised cameras that are:
"lightly used", "backup", "not much used", "used for hobby"

but then reported a shutter count like 10-20K and above.

Honestly, it took me quite sometime (1.5-2 years) to go to 10K.
That is even when I was travelling 3-4 trips a year.

I guess I want to seek opinions what can be called "lightly used" or "hobby" camera in terms of shutter count.

cheers all
