Pentax Shutter Count...up!!!!

Alright folks, it's time for the first annual Pentax shutter count-up!

Here are the rules:

-You must post what camera

-You must post how many shutter actuations have been made by said camera

-If it's a guestimate please say it's a guess

-When did you get said camera(s)

At the end of one full week I'll close the thread and give a tally of how many clicks we as a group have made!

Fun right? OF COURSE!

This coming week will be my first anniversary with it!
The last pic I took with it was 6,709.
I bought it from Newegg because I've done a lot of business with them and at the time I had heard a lot about rip-off camera retailers and didn't yet know which ones, like B&H, were honest and reliable. It's been a very fun year and I'm looking forward to many more:-).
This should be a very interesting thread.

I have a *istDS that I placed in service in late March 2005 that I have rolled the counter over once and now has 1634 actuations, so that would make 11,634. I bought a K10D in September 2007 and it has 4,363 actuations on it as of today.

Use EXIF software like PhotoME and open your last picture... scroll through the pages of info to find the number.

I'm away from my big hard drive, but I'll post tomorrow
