I'm curious about how many shots one can expect to get out of a D5100 before it's junk. Not looking for a number like 263,521 but some kind of ball park like a hundred thousand, half million, million, etc. The reason I ask is I shoot a lot of birds in continuous mode and this past weekend I fired off about 1500 shots in one day and am wondering just how long the camera can keep this up.
