Language and time had already been set on my D800E. It came from a local shop and I picked it up as soon as it arrived from Nikon. I know they didn't open the box. It had one actuation after I took one shot.

Some people here may make the argument that it doesn't matter if it has been slightly used, personally if I'm shelling out a large amount of money I want the peace of mind that comes with a brand new product.

I feel the same way, yet I also like the ability to return a camera or lens if I'm not happy with it. That means someone has to take my rejects. Neither the store, nor Nikon could write off all the items that get returned.

Hi Robin,

The store I bought it from said that the fact Language and Time had been set was an indicator that it been opened and used before. Certainly that's been my experience of buying new Nikon cameras in the past.

I agree that the rejects don't provide much use for the manufacturer. However if I buy something new I expect something new. If the item is used it adds doubts to the purchase...
