Re: Shutter Actuations

I had a hankering for an E-1 advertised on eBay. I asked the seller how many shutter actuations and he told me 110k. As the estimated average for a pro Olympus camera is reputed to be 150k I declined to bid despite the fact the photographs showed the camera to be in good condition. Bearing in mind I'd be pushing it to do 10k per year by my reckoning it may have been an incorrect decision as I could possibly have had 4 years out of the camera. I've just bought an E-3 with 11.5k actuations. The E-xxx range is reputed to have a shutter life of 50k.
