Anyone got to 40k+ shots on the GRIII? Did they resolve the poor shutter life of the older models?

Hi there!

After the fungus debacle in the GRII lens, I'm returning it.

And now I'm thinking about asking a friend to bring the GRIII from the states.

But after the disappointment with the used GRII and all the reports of GRIs and IIs dieing after just around 40 to 50k shots or less. I wonder if they resolved the poor life expectancy. So I'm starting this pool.

It seem that the dust issue is still there to some point, but what about the sticky shutter and the stuck barrel issues after around 40K shots that usually leads to the camera dieing? Did anyone got the shutter count this high after only one year to give some insights?

I'm afraid of expending double the money on the GRIII and not getting the minimum 100k shots that cameras around this price range gives you. I think that if the shutter/camera life is still the same, the cheaper GRII is the better option.
