    I am just a lil bit over 10k shutter releases.

    How much would it cost to fix it after it breaks?

    i have somewhere around 15k on my d50 which is still holding strong, around 30k on the D70 which is now a paper weight. and around 7k or so on the d200....As far as fixing it after it breaks....get a new one? :hsugh:

    how'd the d70 die?



    spending a G on a body isn't something I'd like to do very often.

    i agree...but it's part of it.

    The d70 well...the shutter will sometimes freeze and stay halfway closed/open. I could get it fixed i would imagine, but its really not worth it to me. :hsugh:

    I have 15k+ on my d80, and it still looks and acts like new.

    I don't anticipate it dying until I drop it.

    What in the world would make you think it has a shelf life?

    After 50k shutter releases on my D80 I'm pretty sure I'm going to want a new camera. Not that I don't like the D80, but I'm not under the impression it's going to last me for life.

    My D70s has almost 30,000 actuations on it and I don't have any complaints with it so I'm guessing the D80 should last you.

    I have over 30k on my d70, and it still works flawlessly.

    Unless you shoot hundreds upon hundreds of images everyday, my guess is by the time your d80 shutter wears out, you'll have a new camera already.

    i dont think that there has ever been official word from nikon. they fail at 20K and some people get 100K. it is electronic, it breaks, dawt.
