I did not know that!

Apparently lower end digital SLRs have a small enough shutter life that it's actually a concern when buying a used one. The low end ones tend to have ~20k shutter actuations in them and the higher end about 300k. There's even an on line data base where people can enter in the number of shutter actuations they've had (there is apparently software to query your camera.)

Now it's true for the average consumer, 20k is a lot of photos (1 picture a day for 56 years) but is still in the realm of possible.
