I have been on the lookout for a great deal on a used Canon 1D Mark IV with low actuations. My idea of low is less than 100K out of the 300k estimated life. I am seeing ads and auctions for bodies with less than 10K and some below 2500!!!! Is it believeable that someone would spend upwards of $6000 and shoot only 2000 images? I can squeeze that many off in one game. I suppose they may have been videographers but would video use entail the same wear and tear as tens of thousands of shutter actuations?
Now that the 1Dx is on the refurb list for mid $5000, I may abandon my search for a $3000 1D4 and get a 1 year warranty.
