A shutter count of 500 is basically brand new. I fire off that many shots at my grnadson's soccer game. I don't know anything about Australian prices, but based on an earlier post you implied that this is much less expensive than a refurb price.
What is the back story? Why is it for sale?

"Camera was purchased in Mid 2014."
Two years old and he shot only 500 clicks? Sounds fishy to me.
"The seller is switching to Mirrorless."
But if this is true, he is an idiot! Going from a 5D Mk III to mirrorless, right, good idea.

The price of new one is around AUD 3100 here (plus minus AUD 100). The seller is switching to Mirrorless. Camera was purchased in Mid 2014.
Sounds like someone is probably switching their camera brand to me. Brand S, maybe?

If you get the shutter count from any other source besides a real deal Canon service center, it may or may not be accurate. Just keep that in mind. And, just because somebody got an accurate count from some unofficial sourcedoes not guarantee you will.
