Be aware of your camera mechanical shutter expected lifetime.

Some Canon cameras have a higher quality shutter built into the camera body than others. Incidentally, this is true of all cameras, not just Canon models  and Sony tens to be less than the recent best 500,000 shot Canon models.  I had he the shutter replaced one for $300 years ago when I had 225,000 shots  on a 100,000 shot Canon shutter.  IMO Can makes awesome arifact free mechanical shutters like no other company.

Note: These numbers don’t mean your camera shutter is guaranteed to fail at or near this count. Some shutters go well beyond these numbers while others don’t make these numbers. This is the number of actuations the shutter is designed and warrantied to reach.

The Electronic Shutter when used will not wear the mechanical shutter except for turning on or off the camera.
