crack in D700 repair or not?
Feb 25, 2009

Hi Everyone,

I recently switched from Canon to a Nikon D700. Unfortunately, my D700 developed a small crack between the QUAL and WB buttons after 8 days of use. I have no idea how this happened as it wasn't dropped or subjected to rough treatment. The camera still works perfectly and I feel that this damage is largely cosmetic. I'm considering getting it repaired, but I've seen the horror stories about sending a camera in for repair and getting it back with even more problems. From corresponding with Nikon support, they are saying they can't guarantee that they can repair it under warranty because it's external damage. I'm just wondering if it's worth the hassle from those who have dealt with the El Segundo repair center.
Thanks
