Even better than that. 150k is mean time before failure. One might say, 150k before first maintenance. There have been reports of cameras going well beyond 200k with no problems, as well as cameras sent through the shop and brought back up to specifications. I don't remember the cost and it is likely to vary around the world, but I remember being somewhat shocked because it was well below what I had expected. My recollection was in the $300-400US range including shutter, but I could be wrong.

Once the camera is returned, you are for all intents starting fresh. Has anyone done this?
