Ricoh GRII used with 13000 shutters or new one?

Hi everyone,

I'm new.

I'm considering to buy a Ricoh Gr II but I'm struggling to decide if buy an used one for 380€ with 13000 shutters and some dust in ( please check pics attached at f16, one no edits, one dehazed to highlight spots) or a new one for 580€ with 2 years warranty.

If I didn't read about the shutter closed issue I would go for the used one, https://streetphototip.com/howtos/ricoh-gr-closed-shutter-problem/

However, do you think that 13000 shutters are already too many and the camera could die soon? I'm afraid I could fell "limited" in terms of shooting as I would think about the counter of shutters increasing...

Thanks for your suggestions, really appreciated!

normal

dehazed and contrast
