    Hi,

    There is an EM5 for sale online in nick conditions.

    Would you guys buy an used OMD, with 5k clicks on the dash? (they asking about AU$600)
    How much life could still have in it? Estimated life span?

    Thanks in advance

    If I remember my internet correctly, the shutter is rated for 100K.
    Keeping that in mind, you have a lot of clicks left to burn.

    If everything else checks out, seems like a deal, good luck!

    No problem at all... I am not sure what's the shutter life of E-m5 but if it's anythinf like DSLR's its in the 100,000clicks.

    Yeah, it's supposed to last around 100K. 5% is pretty good.

    If the price is good, buy it. 5k is nothing if the camera hasn't been abused. I bought my used one with 14k and it looked brand new (used in a studio).

    I bought mine at the end of May. 5096 actuations today in 3 months. 20K a year, it will still last 5 years or so.

    27,482 since it first came out. I hardly touch it in the winter so i reckon it'll be about 32K after 2 years so that's 16K a year.

    Sheesh, it's almost like new. It's not uncommon to shoot 500 to 1000 images in a busy day, so 5000 clicks means the owner only used it a few times.
