    I have a line on a D70 for about $500, but it has about 10,000 actuations and does not include any glass. This seems like a pretty good deal. However, 10k seems like a lot.. thoughts?

    PS. I'm a total DSLR noob, so I'm just looking for something to learn on.

    you might be able to get a d70s for a little more than that brand new. do some researching around. i haven't seen any real deals that close since Christmas, but it might be worth a look to see if you can't find anything. just an fyi.

    You need to just go ahead and sell every camera you own after asking that.

    Don't mind the haters, the correct answer is 250-300. That is the normal # per month [​IMG]

    I fire around 1200~2500 per weekend on my 20D during my busy season. 10K actuations is nothing. I think the shutters are rated for 100k actuations.

    I've heard 100k, too, from a thread I started awhile ago, basically the same thread.

    I got my D70 with a crumpler bag, kit lens that was never used, everything included except the manual for $600 cash. That was last Thanksgiving. It had 6120 actuations then, looked like new. I've taken about 4000 with no trouble since then, so right at about 10k like you...

    10k isn't bad at all. I have ~16k on my 10d and it's still going strong. Shutter replacement is only a couple hundred bucks anyways.
