To be true i am happy with my A100 and want it for longer than

buying a new cam

Aside the fact that 100 000 actuation is lot of images and it is likely that many will upgrade their cameras before even reach this number, we shouldn't forget that even if the shutter mechanism fails, it can be easily and relatively cheaply replaced.

We are talking here about 200-300 USD dollars (AFAIK) which isn't too much for anyone that is actually capturing so many frames IMHO. Especially if we do consider that such a service does include (at least that is what i was told) a proper recheck and calibration of the whole body including SSS, AF, metering etc.
