What will be the shutter count on a camera which has the shutter replaced? Shutter count = old shutter count + new shutter count or Shutter count = new shutter count only? Anyone knows?

It seems that the count is not set back to zero - unless Canon replace the mirror-box as well as the shutter. It wasn't on my 1DMkII.

I talked to a canon rep about this last week. Due to "privacy reasons" they wouldn't tell me what service history the camera had, but reassured me once the shutter was replaced the "count" would read the number of actuations on that shutter so yes, new shutter = 0.

Quick question, when do we need to replace shutter normally in term of actuation counts?

When it fails. Some will go with low counts, other will last 300k+

Best time would be when it stops working. Up until then you have no way of telling if its going to fail in the next 100 shots or the next 100,000, or if ever.

Seems simple enough........

When I got a new shutter in my mk2 it was not set to Zero.

Does the odometer on your car reset to zero after you change the wheel? Or even if you change the entire suspension? Then why should a shutter count reset after replacing the shutter?

I'm just repeating what the canon rep told me on the phone. My 1Dsmk2 had it's shutter replaced, and now reads only 14k on the count in exif when it should be 40-50k.

Thanks guys...

It's just that I felt cheated when I bought the used 5d2. The seller told me it had only 2K+ actuations and I found that it had 46K+ later on. I thought I need to get it replaced around 100K actuations or at least get it serviced.

But the shutter sounds different to me compared to my XSI and 7D.

I would feel cheated too if someone said that.

I think the shutter on a 5d2 is rated up to 150k from what I remember reading

Why did you think that?
Get it replaced when it dies.

I replaced the shutter in my 1D MkII in January at 187,737 and the counter wasn't reset. It's now at 240,000 something
It's no big deal.
What I worry about is how the images look - not a stupid number that's meaningless

They do.
Why are you worrying about what your shutter sounds like?

I have two cars, both engines sound different. Doesn't mean I should be worried
