    so, in an effort to (further) justify my purchasing the em5, and knowing that i MAY immediately be playing another camera preorder on May 10th... i decided to check my shutter counts, as a...

    "see look, i DO use these cameras a ton, so i need MORE of them so they dont wear out too fast! like your shoes! see! its like shoes!"

    ... and i was pretty shocked that my oly e30 had so many! ~32k!

    my ep3, which everyone swears i use way more than my e30 only has ~17k...

    tho it has been had for a lot less time, and the e30 was used to shoot motorcycle racing... where i maxed out the burst quite frequently as people came zooming around corners... so i can kind of see it

    but anyways... anyone else shocked by their shutter count??

    Personally, your counts are merely a warm up for how I shoot. lol )I shoot a lot of sports and theatrical performances.)


    PS- My dinosaur FF Canons have a 300,000 shutter actuation guaranty.

    Shocked? No, but I've only had to replace the shutter on my original Canon 300D. My 1Ds came to me with a 200,000 shutter count already along with a 90% discount :)

    My PM1 is not even 6k. A little disappointed in myself, actually.

    I was a bit disappointed to see that my G1 has only clocked 20487 after three years.

    yeah well before my e30 i had a nikon d70(that i got based on specs over an oly e1... MISTAKE!) that im SURE i took at LEAST 1k photos with... no... not 100k... just 1k... i hated it and gave it to my sister and went back to lusting the e1... LOL!

    hopefully the em5 will go a tad higher for me in a time:shuttercount ratio
