Oh man, two different opinions, still confused and have to pay for this today. I can still back out, I can even add $350 and get a new Mark II if I want.

So as long as I have the paper from Canon with the serial number that is the same as on the bottom plate and in the camera software then there is no way he could have switched the body or something?

It just seems strange that Canon would put new body panels and grip and such, he doesn't say why they would do that, only that they did and this raises a red flag to me, as if he could be the one who changed the serial plate on the bottom or something.

I say add the 350 and get new one..then you know what you have.

I doubt shutter count goes to 0 when replaced. Shutter is just a mechanical part - counter is somewhere in firmware.

Wow. I just read the OP, and I also looked at the Ebay listing. This OP is the kind of Ebay bidder who ruins an auction and makes a lot of extra work for the seller. The nervous amateur buyer who bids first and thinks later, and then wants his money back. The seller was quite clear in his description about the history of the camera. The buyer - basically clueless - never should have made a bid.

From a service stand-point it sounds wrong to reset the counter.

But a service note indicating the counter value when the shutter was replaced would be meaningful, allowing the owner to compute the number of actuations with the new shutter.

Nice old thread....I found mention of the old focus motor interesting!

In all fairness to the OP, we all have our learning curves in life. Mistakes and worries create experience!

For the minimal savings/age/replaced plates (drop damage?), he did well to just buy "new". Lesson learned. :)
