23K is low IMO for a sports shooting body like the D300. I know there are plenty of D300's with more than 100K shots on them (not that their aren't plenty of constant upgraders that sell their bodies with less than 5K shots on them also, however, most of those bodies have been sold already during the D800/D600 upgrade cycles).

Myself, I put about 5K actuations on my D300 in the first month or two getting used to the AF, etc. I've got about 35K on mine and I'm pretty confident it has plenty of life left.

The reality is that most non-pros replace their gear long before their shutter wears out.

And what can I realistically expect from it? I know it's rated at 150k but what's reality?
