You are assuming the seller knew it or even knew that shutter activations is an important data point.

If he was the original owner he certainly knew. That's HUGE use of a camera. If he's used a camera that much

1. He certainly knows enough about photography to know it's important.

2. He should say so on Ebay. This is fundamentally dishonest. Ebay is founded on honesty.

If he was not the original owner, then that's possibly different.

When I sell cameras on Ebay all the flaws are outlined. I expect the same from others.
