Default life span of S5?

My S5 is approaching 130,000 shutter actuations.
- No way to buy new (used) DSLR right now.
Only sign of aging is to bright preview.
How long your S5pro have lasted?

I shoot with two S5 bodies and also have a brand new one in an unopened box.

I am not sure how long they will last but I hope I can keep them working for a very long time.

Fantastic!!!
I was eying some ebay auctions for used S5.
Initially I wonted to replace it with D7000 but now I'm convinced that is worth to stay with S5.
