New 70D - Starting Image Number

I received my new 70D a week ago and went out a couple of times to shoot some photos.

While I was out I didn't pay attention to the image count.

When I go home and loaded them onto my PC, I noticed that the count started at just over 5300.

I know my T2i started at just about 0001 when I got it.

I made my purchase from a very reputable store.

Is there any reasonable explanation for this?

A bit more background.

I used the same card starting the 70D that I had used a day or two earlier in my old T2i.

I formatted the card but don't remember in which camera.

When I looked back at the last images taken on the T2i the number is around 5200.

Is there any way the number on the images on the card (if I actually formatted the card in the 70D) could set the counter in the 70D?

= = = = = =

Or maybe the question should really be, is there any way to read the actually picture count on the camera?
