Maybe.  Telephone call upwardly Canon and ask them what it costs to have the shutter replaced should it neglect.  And then you’ll know what your full possible expenditure is.  I’ve heard of some 5D Mark III failing around lxxx,000, and I’ve heard of others going by 400,000.  I’m sure the average is somewhere in betwixt.

personally i would never buy a camera with 140k shutter.

ymmv but why would yous buy it instead of a brand new 6d? do yous really need those features that marking iii have and 6d doesn’t? if you demand, ignore this question

just 6d is equally practiced or even better in terms of image quality.

That’due south getting pretty long in the tooth and a little pricey for an older photographic camera. See this chart:

https://world wide web.olegkikin.com/shutterlife/canon_eos5dmkii.htm

It volition probably last for years more, only the primal give-and-take is “probably.” I would enquire them to lower the cost a bit.

As an aside, I ain ii 5D III and use them professionally and never had a bit of trouble. Great cameras.

Yea I agree the 6D is a very dainty camera

I mainly want a 5d for the better af, better built, two cards…

on the other hand, due to a promotion I can purchase a new 5ds for

3150€ with the bge11 grip.

Also I can confirm i never had issues with my Canon cameras but as ppl country here, I call back 140.000 is a risk and that 5ds is tempting (no I dont need those 50mp but its damn nice and same af every bit a 5d mkiii)

Re: Canon 5d marking iii with 140.000 shutter count worth information technology ?

without reading the other posts: I’d get for a new 6D if the itching is too strong to wait for the side by side body upgrade, as the 6D’s high ISO IQ is slightly amend, its centre AF point is very adequate and the price today is a steal. Just got one myself terminal month bought on insurance money for my stolen 5DIII and never looked back…check my flickr for samples. well, that’s my 0.2 cents though…
