  1. Hey! Just listened to the show.
    A few weeks ago I found a site that listed the average death of each canon. It went a little like this:
    XTi – 50k
    30D – 150k
    40D – 150k
    5D – 200k
    1D Mk III – 300k-500k (don’t really remember)
    1Ds Mk III – 300k-500k (don’t really remember)

    Just thought I would throw in my bit of knowledge!

  2. I just had my 6MP Digital Rebel (bought in Sept 2004)repaired in February 2008 by Canon and it cost me $195.00, plus shipping (US). This is Canon’s set repair fee and they fix everything that is wrong with it – whether you tell them to or not. The problems I had were:

    1. bent mirror arm (this prompted the repair)
    2. built in flash was not popping up correctly since about 2006
    3. compact flash card ejector button was broken since about 2006

    I got it back about 3 weeks from the day I sent it to Canon. It works perfectly now!
