    Well, she does. Now the Shutter Abuser Club has a new member, but
    this guy shoots little dogs, not horses.

    Based on his experience, Nikon rates their DSLR shutter longevity
    very conservatively, as his D70 averaged over 100,000 shots for each
    of its four shutters (rated at 50,000) and "pro" DSLRs appear to do
    even better :

    You seem to be assigning far too great a weight to pictures that
    probably made up a tiny fraction of his pictures years ago (if what
    you say was accurate), and which may no longer be posted on his
    website. Are any still online that you're aware of? This quote
    seems to be a more accurate representation of what he currently
    shows :

    But the keeper percentage isn't what I found interesting in this
    thread. It was what was said about Nikon's shutter longevity :
    YMMV, especially if you don't clean up after your pooh-dles. :)

    You wouldn't believe how well he's trained those poms.

    Yeah, that's the ticket!

    But with an end result comparable to what PerfectPoms produced.
    Lots of cute little energetic dogs vs. one large, unappealing dog.

    He can always upgrade his D3 to a D90.
