Yes, the camera body follows the last number on the CF card inserted
not the last number of shutter clicks. This has been a point of
confusion for years. You could have a new camera with only 1 shutter
click but after inserting a CF card with the last number of 500 would
show the next number as 501.

I find it odd that so many people haven't noticed this until they buy a 5D/5D2/1D/1Ds I/II/III. I figured that out when I put a CF card from my D30 into a 10D...
