Look here.

Thanks... only I don't know how much help that site is, though -- I don't see any mirrorless or DSLT cameras, and data on Sony DSLRs is sparse and all over the map. Sony DSLR values for "Average number of actuations after which shutter died" range wildly from downright scary to encouraging.

Sony "Average number of actuations after which shutter died" values:

  • A390 - 11,329
  • A380 - 11,983
  • A100 - 14,582
  • A300 - 18,255
  • A350 - 26,468
  • A550 - 973,656
  • A900 - 2,547,085

Consumer-grade Nikons predictably have more data, but of course these are also DSLRs:

  • D3000 - 206,133
  • D5000 - 247,264

Consumer-grade Canons fare worse:

  • 450D - 41,843
  • 400D - 148,938

I don't know if it's worth trying to evaluate the other data points in this database... I'd really love to hear some anecdotal reports from SLT/E-mount owners!
