It's silly though to reset them to 0. All cameras should go through testing first to be sure they are working correctly. A standard 200 shots should be taken.

I LIKE that mine was at 0. That way I know, exactly how many times *I've* pressed the shutter release.

My guess is that Pentax has made a change at the factory wherby those tests that ran the shutter count to about 200 are no longer recorded to prevent all these "help my new camera has 200 actuations" threads and returns. Good idea.
Or maybe they no longer test them :-)
