The worst part is that I can't use these cameras as they covered in ketchup from a food shoot. I have my own company specializing in spec work photographs of restaurant meals. I trade the photos to restaurant owners for the meals, but most restaurant owners do not like really well photogaphs apparently. Nikon talks about water resistant sealing but I guess ketchup is some sort of exception.

This is funny but what happened to me wasn't.  When I first got my 14-24 I was doing a shoot at a historic hotel.  Not realizing the ever present danger lurking above I set the D800 down to use another D800 and when I went back to the 14-24 it was completely covered with the most horrible-looking white and purple bird crap you had ever seen.  I spent about 20 minutes with hotel towels desperately cleaning the lens.

Luckily it still worked after the ordeal.

PS..... B and H wouldn't take it back..
