Shutter failure on the Nex 6; repair or throw?

Well after only about 9,000 actuations the shutter has failed on my Nex 6; fortunately this was after returning from a trip to Europe where at the very end of our stay it started to falter. I had the Sony Zeiss 24 mm F1.8 attached and the photos were stunning.

Camera is over a year old; bought used for $620 and is obviously past warrantee. Should I have it repaired or throw it out? Anyone want to take a guess at shutter replacement costs from Sony?

As a landscape photographer I would like the increased megapixels of the A7 camera combined with the new 35 mm lens.

Let me know what you think. Thanks.
