I finished importing photos into Adobe Lightroom and have these counts for three items that are not working 100% anymore. All three are out of warranty.
- Canon EOS REBEL T1i - 49,794 photos
- Tamron 18-270mm lens - 53,477 photos
- Tamron 200-500mm lens - 45,339 photos
Metering sometimes does not work well on the T1i so I switch to manual. The autofocus motor spins on the 18-270mm lens but it usually does not engage the gear, so I use it in manual focus mode. The 200-500mm lens makes lots of noise and causes an error after each shot so I have to turn the camera off between shots.
My guess is that this "Prosumer-level" equipment is not engineered for high photo counts in my outdoor photography environment, where the temperature was 106 degrees Fahrenheit (41°C) yesterday and -18 (-25°C) last January.
