Re: How many shutter actuations should I expect? (incl. web tool to check yours)

I would say most consumers don't put more than 10 or 15k shutter actuations, I would expect them to last 50k actuations.  I think they are "rated" for around 100k, but that number is somewhat meaningless.  I think you are likely to see more fail before 100k than after. A friend just had their Canon shutter fail in their T2i around 70k shots.
