used E-M10 being sold as new?

Received my second E-M10 from Amazon the other day.  The packaging didn't look pristine, although the baggies were intact.  The battery had come out of its plastic bag.

I thought I'd check the shutter count.  The way to do this is described on this excellent page.

The results I got were:

R (shutter releases) 147

S (flash fires) 18

U (ultra-sonic filter) 78

B (number of shots taken with IBIS on) 35

Is it just me or do these numbers seem rather high?  Even allowing for a few test shots after assembly.  Surely no need to fire the flash 18 times??

Would appreciate your expert input   Thanks!
