Good. But I have heard (or read) on this forum that the 1DSMKII have problems with the shutter in some cases. That it need replacement long before 200k exposures.

That's true for all shutters. Some fail early, some fail later. A photo magazine did an automated test of a 1D shutter and got over million shots before it failed.
