shutter replacement cost - $150-250

The shutter replacement cost is around $150-250 and that is after 100,000 actuations. 100K actuations will by itself last you a LONG while.

The key here is that technology will outpace the lifespan of these cameras and the need to upgrade will be dictated not by the camera failing but by the need to get the latest-and-greatest, x number of years from now. The camera itself will keep on ticking, if you are satisfied with its output.
