Thanks to those dumping 5D for 5D2, I got a great deal

why did you buy a 5D?

You have a d3 and a 1Ds2 both of which out perform the 5D in most cases.

And it is HIGHLY unlikely your 5D had the shutter fire only 100 times. There is no way to know how many actuations a 5D has. Switching CF cards, having JPGs on a card from another camera, formatting a CF card in another unit, etc. can switch the file number set as the next file name.

Plus since EXIF only allows for 4 digits in the file name, the numbering resets to 0001 after you hit 9999. It seems like the EXIF standard should be updated to allow for 6 digits such as 020000.jpg instead of 1234.jpg
