I am sure that every X amount of cameras are pulled from the assembly line and tested. Are they used. What is acceptable actuations. What about having outside of every box shipped from manufacturer and retailer have the number of actuations on it. This way you know what you are buying.

My Df had 200+ which I (and others) welcomed, they upped their QC. To some though, that is a 1% use of the shutters life.

If the 200 actuations were infact were part of a factory QA testing I would not mind it at all.

I would agree however, that a note in the box from the manufacturer to that effect would be useful.

The 200 actuations are closer to being 0.1% of the Df's shutter life.

I find it hard to believe that 200 actuations were part of factory QC. I would expect that the factory would reset the actuations to 0 before shipping. My D800 had zero when I got it, I don't see why Nikon would use one policy for one camera and another for another. More likely, there were relatively few Dfs distributed, given the old style controls many people wanted to have a fiddle, and many did before it was reboxed and sold.
