My 1DsII shutter is dying after less than 40000 actuations, and the main board died around 20000. I don't think 1 series quality is that much better. Modern consumer goods unfortunately aren't on the level it was 30 years ago.

How does the dying shutter manifest itself? You said the faster speeds are getting errant, is it like the exposure is no longer trustworthy or do you have uneven exposure like a bright border in the frame?

My DsII is around 30K shots now, so far no signs of failure.
