    Do we know or have an estimate how many shutter actuations you can get out of an Olympus u-43 body?

    I read that the OM-D E-M5 is rated for 100,000 actuations, I would imagine that the PEN line would be slightly less.

    You're going to lose interest before you break your shutter.

    The 100K for the E-M5 is pretty good for a prosumer camera. Although it doesn't have a dedicated professional service center like a "pro" camera would, I'd assume that the shutter would last as long as they claim... unfortunately I doubt the rest of the camera would last as long as the shutter.

    Did anyone actually follow the links to where that data came from, and what cameras it's for?

    E series Olympus DSLRs. Nuttin' to do with µ4/3 cameras.
