Shannon76, do me a favor. Try eoscount and get a shutter count of your camera. Take a bunch of pictures and keep track of how many you take. Then try eoscount again. Does the shutter count increase by the number of pictures that you took?
Last winter I bought a refurb 7D from Canon. I used eoscount (it was free then) and was impressed that my refurb body only had a few hundred shutter actuations on it. After taking a couple thousand images, I used eoscount again. It still showed only a few hundred.
There was a time when I took the rated "shutter life" somewhat seriously, particularly when a friend reported that his 50D died around 60,000. But, then I ran across a story that reported the mean shutter count before actual failure as reported by service records. For recent EOS bodies, most were 500,000 or higher. Sorry, I don't recall where I read this story or the details of how they got their numbers, but it convincing enough for me to not worry about. Although, I do agree that it can be one indicator for the use of a used camera -- but, not, necessarily, of the abuse it took.
