D3x shutter failed after 45,000
Aug 2, 2012

My D3x is almost 2 years old, so well out of the 1 year warranty period. But Nikon states on their website "the shutter of the D3S and D3X has been tested for 300000 cycles."

My shutter failed with less than 50,000 activations but Nikon repair is asking $450 for the repair.

Anyone have any tips for getting this repair under warranty since it is so far below the rated shutter duty?
