Do DSLRs gradually go bad?

Re: Not in my experience

I had a 30D from early 2006 that just died out in July 2012 after an excess of 50k shots.  Shot 50k looked just as good as shot #1.  I took very good care of mine, but certain mechanical pieces are only built to last so many reps.  I think it's expected after 50k shots something within the motor would go out, but until that happens a well maintained functioning DSLR should have the ability to produce good shots.
