    20D shutter reliablility

    I'm just curious if everyone knows the shutter reliablity on the 20D?

    lol, i had it for about 4 months and already racked up 5k of shots.

    thanks in advance

    don't worry, i've put 20k on my 300d and the shutter is still fine. HOWEVER, the spring that holds the two part mirror together busted off! i was expecting something to fail soon but i never thought i would be the mirror. it's being repaired under warranty, but it makes me wonder about the rated life span of the mirror, or if they even rate it at all. hey it does flip up just as many times as the shutter blades.
