In reply to McKie, Mar 7, 2013

I'm not in the UK but have gone through 4 LAF defective D800E bodies in a row so far.  When I received the second one and found it defective, I thought about sending it to Nikon Service instead of asking the retailer for a replacement, but before doing so came to this forum and read horrible experiences others have had, then decided to ask for a replacement.  I've been happily using Nikon digital for more than 15 years now, but the service treatment they seem to be offering in many cases on D800 issue is unacceptable.

Obviously, do test correctly, but don't fall into trap of those suggesting that if Nikon Service found no fault then there's no fault, it's your lens, or you haven't read a page in the manual. These were my test results from one of the four bodies ( D800E test )
