It's apparently normal for a brand new Pentax to have a couple hundred shutter actuations from in-factory testing. I'd say that anything over about a thousand would raise a flag for me. . .



Thanks for the link to this program. I had long ago lost count of my numbers on my K20d. I was a little surprised to find that in a little more than a year, I had recorded nearly 68K shutter actuations on my K20. I can't help but think about how long it would have taken to take that many photos in the film days.
