    Hi

    I'm looking at buying a used EP-3. What is a reasonable shutter count for a one year old unit, assuming "normal amateur" use?

    Is there any indication of the expected life of this camera in terms shutter count?

    Thanks

    obviously the lower the shutter count the better. for an ep3 a year old, I would say 2000-5000 shots is ok and pretty normal. If there were more than 10000 Id say it was heavily used for non-professional use but then again if the camera did have high shutter count (what ever the number), it could give you a good case for lowballing an ep3.
