That is just a warmup. You need to go out and use it little more.

Pentax K-x
Manufactured November 2009
Purchased April 2010
Current Shutter Count: 37,126

Working great and still looks almost like new. It's the white body, and I've never had to clean dirty smudges off. The white finish is holding up very well and is surprisingly resistant to smudges. Of course, I usually try to keep my hands clean, but this camera has been handled A LOT, and doesn't really show it.

Bought K-x new in October 2010... as of today, only 4803 shots. I need to get working on that!

(On second thought, that does average about 40 shots a day... is that on par for a dedicated hobbyist?)
Since posting that, I used the nifty shutter count/manufacture tool this forum posted on Facebook. Here's the update:

Manufactured August 23, 2010, bought October 2010, and now up to 18,253 actuations.

(Man, my pointer finger is tired...)

I am at 7319 on my K-5 that I purchased used in December (was just shy of 5000 when I acquired it).

I had around 12000 on my K-x that I had owned for exactly one year before I sold it... I loved that camera so much and kept it perfect, I'm sure its new owner is as pleased with it as I was.

K100D Super, july 2008 to october 2008; 15919
K20D, novenber 2008 to march 2009 (dropped and broke); 19405
K20D, april 2009 to end of july 2010 (again another dropping accident);74570
K7, august 2010 to end of january (still have the unit); 71671
K5 after one week; 890 (two days of shooting butterflies)

So I hope I didn't scare anyone!

No, sounds like your dropped cams died a noble death while serving their master. That is a good amount of shutter actuation's.
