I bought myself 5N about two months ago and I have already taken over 7000 shots (loving it!). I'm just wondering how long will my 5N last with this shooting-rate? Anybody have any ideas what is average count for this type camera before breaking?

Estimates vary from 25,000 to 150,000 and anywhere in between.

I would assume a minimum of 50,000 shots, and probably more like 100,000 shots are easily achievable. Using Electronic Front Shutter definitely should help, as only one curtain has to move.

At your rate, 100,000 shots would take a little under three years.
