Should I be concerned about Shutter Actuations on a Refurbished Nikon D7100?
4 months ago

I specify Nikon, because they only give 90 days, while Canon gives a year warrantee. Nikon's reps are completely clueless, so questioning them doesn't help. I'm not sure where these refurbs come from, I'm assuming they were replaced on warrantee or were demo models. The thing is, they may even reset the shutter, as I have heard of customers getting bodies with a count of 25. This is something that I wouldn't have considered on a film camera, I would just judge it by condition. Should I do that with a Refurb too? From what I understand, it is only returnable in it's sealed box (before I see it) or if it turns out to be defective. If there is cosmetic damage, it's not something that I could return. I'll be stuck with it. This is a D7100 that they offered to prior customers of their refurbished department for $799.00 It was a 1 day special, that I found at 11:00 PM, so I just ordered it with no time to think about it. I've bought lenses that came in Like-New condition, but my other bodies were all bought new (Incl. a D7100). It's just a day away now, anyone have an opinion to offer? … Joe
