5D Shutter Count
Jan 26, 2010

Hey all, I'm looking to say good-bye to my faithful 350D and possilby taking in a well cared for 5D. I have my eye on one with approx 40K actuations under the hood. I've never bought used before, so please bear with my obvious insecurities. ahem. To put it out there, my major fear is that soon after I get the camera, the shutter will fail and I will have to send it in for repair - feels good to get that out there! Now onto my question, I'm wondering how many actuations your 5D has had to date? And maybe around when you had your shutter replaced - if you have had it replaced at all!

I don't see this turning into a flame thread ... or one involving a Nikon vs Canon debate ... but ... I won't rule it out-they tend to materialize out of no where sometimes, I apologize in advance if it does turn into that.

Much thanks in advance!
