Go back and re-read that thread. It wasn't a camera issue after all.  Just as is the case with the example below.

Thanks for your detailed reply Mako, sorry if I hit a nerve and offended you, it certainly was not my intention.

I don't know what you expect from a guy like me? I've just invested $2K in a camera and lens, which may not seem like much to others, but it's a heck of a lot to me. I have 2 weeks to try out this rig to see if I can handle it and it can do what I'm looking for, but despite having given it many dozens of hours of time (I've taken 5 full days off work to do this) I'm now fresh out of time. Sorry if that annoys you, but that's the reality I'm facing.

Not at all...simply take a little advice. I will admit though the "I'm crazy-busy" post I found frustrating.  The camera really does not have a problem. It never under exposed, as an example. It does not have a green issue as another example.

By the way, I'm not out of patience or effort or willingness to try, which is why I am more than ready to buy the camera back if I get get the green shadows issues resolved with the software I currently own.

No issue...did you read my post on that? Did you check your ViewNX2 Color management settings and adjust your workflow for flicker? What browser are you using?

What I am not willing to do is keep a camera on the hopes that this problem will get resolved, especially when people like mosswings, the camera store staff, and others posting on forums say that this is in fact a problem. I'm not imagining it.

No you are not imagining an issue.. but your are not understanding it and why it isn't actually a problem regards how the camera operates.
