Am I completely mad?

Hi all,

I’ve been shooting with Sony mirrorless for a fair while but for a few reasons have decided to move back to Canon.

I was going to buy a 5d mkiv which I’ve used before but then suddenly found an opportunity to buy the 1dx mk ii. It is advertised as having just 4000 shutter actuations and is in mint condition for £2500.

could I be correct in thinking that with such a low shutter count it may have been used primarily for video, and therefore should I be worried about its longevity? I will get a 6 month warranty on it.

Your views will be welcome…
