Maximum shutter release count

I`m at interest of K10, K100 maximum number shutter release actuations before dead.
Recently have seen K10D with 95k, works good for now.
My own K100D run for 40k, still works fine.
What is your BIGGEST number?

PS yes, I know about official 100k. It`s no info for me, real number from real people - THIS is info.

Good luck on finding an owner that had one die. I sold my K10D two years ago with over 30K and have no idea what happened after that. If you are aware of one with 95K, I guess that is a good indication that they will go at least that far.

I traded my K10 for a K-3 a few months back. The K10 locked up 3 times during a trip, requiring a turn off/on sequence to get going again. She who must be obeyed allowed me to buy the used K-3 to replace it.

Well the official number went up to 200k with the K-3 and 300k with the K-1. Honestly I think other components will start dying before the shutter these days

I've seen some 70K shutter counts in the Marketplace. It might be interesting to stroll through the "Sold" section and see what else you might find.

Not a K10 or K100, I know, but still. I just checked the last photo I took today. I should probably be ashamed.... Down side of maniacally documenting the local wildlife. All the local wildlife.

I picked up a Rumpole story compilation at the local library yesterday. Fun read.
