For what it's worth, here are some shutter life stats on the 5d mkiii. Shutter rated to 150k as well:

I dont know how the 7d shutter mechanism compares to the 5d mkiii, but it could give a rough idea.

... Oops, meant mkii not III.

Same website but here is the info for the Canon 7d:

http://www.olegkikin.com/shutterlife/canon_eos_7d.htm

Average number of actuations after which shutter is still alive: 184,646.2
Average number of actuations after which shutter died: 862,520.8

Please note that these numbers are voluntary numbers w/o any verification. Anybody can enter any number that they want.

I find it very difficult to believe that anyone has taken over 2,000,000 actuations with their 7D.  That equates to about 1587 pictures each and every day since the 7D was released in September 2009.  It is possible I suppose but, in my humble view, most improbable.  Figures like that will skew the results of the likely life of the 7D shutter and I personally would discount their veracity for that reason.
