The mirror does not count as a shutter failure. How long a shutter will last depends on how strong the build quality is. Nikon used to test their shutters to determine how long they last and if they need improvement. I have no idea what Sony's procedure is but if not documented maybe not so good -or- if they brag about it that is a good sign. I have not searched Sony sites to see how much testing they do.

Actually, Nikon may not differentiate between the shutter and the mirror when there's a failure. They replace it as a unit.About 3 years ago, my daughter's D50 failed and Nikon charged $140 plus shipping.
