7Hi reliability question
Jul 1, 2003

In the search for my first digicam, I pretty much had it narrowed down to the 5700 over the 5400, G3, and 7Hi. But, I've recent posts stating that there have been some "out of the box" problems with the lens mechanism. They've been decribed as grinding noises, lens wobble, and down time while waiting for repairs.

I know Nikon makes a good lens, but I'm starting to get concerned about the reliability of the camera. (several repair stories on the Nikon Forum)

I'm now wondering about the 7Hi. I've read about the noise claims, but what about reliability. Can anyone share their "out of the box" experience?
