I purchased my D800 from Amazon 40+ Days ago and since I can't return it I have to send it back to NIkon. I sent them picture samples and they asked for the camera to be sent for evaluation and repair.

I wonder if anyone have had any success story in that issue with Nikon USA repair centers?

Please share your experience.

Thanks,

Ahmad.

Yes, I had a happy ending.....after I sold it on ebay. No more worrying and testing for me. Sold a D800E which was "fixed" at Melville, and bought a D600. IMHO there is a design flaw in the D800 AF system which it appears will never be officially revealed. It will be interesting to see if the left AF comments are still prevalent a year from now. I never should have taken the chance purchasing the D800E with all the horror stories out there. My D4 and D600 are rock solid and the D800E left me guessing.
