Well, the official response, if you can call it that, seems to be to ship them out as they are and frustrate you. A certain percentage of people genuinely won't know, and a certain percentage may give up. Some bean counter has probably worked out that this is the least costly way to deal with it.

The dealers I know are genuinely sorry about the situation but they can't do anything about it.

If Nikon would supply parts to a pro shop that would service our hardware, I wouldn't mind (not that we should have to) having someone else fix it.

It sucks. Big time.

I initially intended to use a D4/D800 combo, but as soon as I realized that the lame AF on the D4 left it no better than the output of my D3s, I got rid of it, rather disgustedly, tried a second one, got rid of it disgustedly as well, and then bought a cheaper D800. I figure as long as the AF does not work it might as well be "cheap." Not that $3k is cheap
