New D800e?
Feb 23, 2013

Hi,

After much consideration between the D800 and D800e I took advantage of the instant savings now available and purchased a D800e from an online retailer.  I just received it and on inspection noticed a few things.  First, the serial number appears to be low, 301XXXX.  Is this an early D800e serial number?  Is there any way to tell when this camera was made?  A site to go to?  And second, the BM-12 monitor cover was already on the camera and had two finger prints on it.  Is this normal?   I am concerned that I have received someone's return and not a new camera.  This retailer has a 30 day return policy and from reading this forum among others it appears to be a common practice for some to purchase multiple cameras and return the ones they don't like.  Is there an online site where I can input the serial number and find out the camera's history?

Thanks
