How is it that Sony is able to rate the shutters on some of their cameras at 500,000 when Canikon's highest tier cameras don't reach that number despite being in the camera business for decades. Their mid and entry level cameras rate even lower. Is Sony measuring it differently or is their tech that far ahead?

Canon has been rating the 1 series shutter at 500 000 actuations for multiple generations. The 1D Mark III (released in 2007) was rated at 500 000 actuations.

I think your premise is faulty.
