Poor packing by Nikon New York
9 months ago

As I reported to a different thread, I just got my D600 back from Nikon after they did the free shutter replacement. Service was rapid (13 days) and appears to have been thorough.

The packing for return shipment was incredibly poor. The camera was wrapped in thin bubble wrap & placed in a standard (in the U.S.) 8 1/4" cubical cardboard box. It was less than 1/2 filled with Styrofoam peanuts, allowing the camera to bounce around freely inside the box.

There was no apparent damage, but I am concerned about damage which may manifest itself in subtle or delayed ways. My local camera dealer was not surprised at the quality of the packing.

Have others had similar experiences? Was your camera okay? Did you contact Nikon?
