my filename conntinues up to IMG_9999 and than starts again from zero, and I've been thru that some times already I guess this is the only chance to know...
About the lifetime of the shutter I once heard around 100'000 pictures, but please tell me it's MORE!

Quoting StealthZ (Reply 2): Lifetime?? my shutter failed at about 45k actuations.. have heard lots worse.. heard lots better.
That sounds about right because the 10D's shutter has a duty life of approximately 50,000 actuations. The 20D is supposed to be about twice that, but I will believe it when I see it. I have heard of many people getting about 100k actuations out of the replacement shutter as it is an even better shutter.
