    Can I expect to get from my Rebel XT. I can't wait to upgrade but want it to last at least another year... In 3 months, I've up to 3,500 clicks. How long does the shutter hold out on these typically??

    At that rate, you'll be good for about another 6 or 7 years at least ;)

    The 'rated' shutter life is an average expectancy. Some don't last nearly that long and some last much longer. So you can't really calculate how long it will last...but I'm pretty confident that you will be OK for a long while yet.

    God, being a Canon I would hope it would last a little longer than that. Otherwise they would be out of business.

    D3 is rated at 300,000 actuations
    F100 is rated at 100,000 actuations
    D100 is rated at 100,000 actuations
    D200 is rated at 100,000 actuations
    D300 is rated at 100,000 actuations
    D700 is rated at 150,000 actuations

    In general, entry level models by both Canon AND Nikon are rated for 50,000, semi-pro models are rated for 100,000, and pro models are rated for between 250,000 to 300,000 actuations. But Big Mike is right on the money when he says regardless the rating it may be far less or far more.
