Is a shutter count of around 156K + too much on a D800 if buying new-to-me?

Also--if I purchased this--can Nikon replace the shutter if it dies? What's the cost of something like that? Is this camera still being serviced until 2022?

There seems to be an aversion by many posters to buying gear off ebay, even from sellers with high positive comments.  Just a quick glance showed me that relatively low actuations D800 bodies are selling in the $500-600 range, or a bit higher.   Over the last 4-5 years I have bought 2 D800 bodies, 1 D800e body, and one D810 body off ebay and not a single problem with any of them.

These days I would not buy a body with more than 30K actuations, and would probably prefer even fewer.
