D800E oil splatter
5 months ago

Lately, I've been experiencing some oil splatter with my D800E. The camera has around 1,000 actuations, and the oil is getting on the back of my lens (24-70mm 2.8G). I checked the sensor and so far it doesn't seem to be affected. It's the same problem that's documented in this thread that has photos: "http://www.dpreview.com/forums/post/52847724". I believe the oil may be coming from the mirror when it locks up. I clean the spots each time with a lens pen, but they come back after 10-20 shots.

My questions are to those who have had this problem. What did you do to fix it? Should I send the camera into Nikon for repair or just wait it out to see if it resolves itself?

Thanks

Nikon D800E
