It depends !  Most of the 'camera' is from the Nikon N/F80.  If the shutter is also from this source then 28,073 is about middle age.  However, I recall reading some while ago that the shutter in the 14N and SLR/N was actually from the F100 (which is more fitting for a Pro camera).  If this is correct then your shutter count represents a young adult   I'll see if I can locate the article.

I think the F80 shutter MTTF is rated at about 50,000 and the F100 at 100,000+.  I am inclined to believe that the shutter is from the F100 as I personally know of 4 14N or SLR/N's that have over 100,000 on the clock.
