    Two days ago, they replaced my wife's knee. That's way harder than replacing a mechanical part on a camera. They actually had her on her feet yesterday morning (not that she went very far, no marathons yet).

    So, to answer your question, piece of cake.

    Technically not a challenge, but with bigger better cheaper bodies coming along on an annual basis, whether it would be economically desirable to do so on a consumer DSLR is highly questionable.

    We need to know what: confidence interval, standard deviation, and number in the test. One really important factor is that they ran every camera in the test to it's failure. In any case think about how these test were conducted, did the cameras get burned at 1:4000 second with endless power supply? If it can last for that long I trust it. Nikon makes great products and if you have a problem Nikon should stand behind it.

    Products built to last there expected life no built to last an infinite period.
    Have you ever wondered why mobile phones all die when they are around two years old which just happens to be the typical contract length?
    Same with cameras. Consumer level products are built to last a couple of years and that's all because the manufacturers know that consumers will be upgrading to the next or next plus one generation by that stage.

    mine is around 16004 (by "Around" I mean "precisely" according to Opanda)...

    Hmmm...that is not that much! Better get HDRing...

    Funny quote from a british magazine on HDR:

    "One guy had his DSLR permanently set to autobracketing so he could HDR every scene. Whenever he hit the shutter button, it felt like we were under enemy attack and I kept looking for places to hide..."
