Are you NPS? Could you not plan far enough ahead to rent a camera?

Sounds like poor planning more than Nikon "screwing" you. Sorry, but I can't imagine how this will get you any sympathy Rent or buy, lots of camera stores in Miami Dade or Broward - even some that speak English

If your work is that important then you should have a backup body.

Sorry.

Wow, didn't realize that the D4 was the only camera that could take pictures anymore. You sound like other people I know, an excuse for everything and it's never their fault.

I have never heard of Nikon taking three months to replace a shutter. If that is true, Nikon owes you an explanation. You can't count on delivery dates though, so either you pick up a used something, then sell it when one of your bodies is ready or you rent when needed. Either way if you didn't have a plan B, that would be your responsibility and not Nikons.

Well, if you work as a photographer and

a) don't have a backup body

b) have not been able to rent, borrow or buy a used camera since the beginning of the season ...

... then you seem pretty helpless.

It is always convenient to blame others when you have screwed yourself.

Nikon service sucks
In reply to petefish, May 15, 2012

I used both canon and Nikon service and Nikon by far is the worse. Canon on the other hand is amazing, sometimes they fix your product for free even if its out of warranty (you pay for shipping only.)

I really hope I never have to send any gear in.

I think we are not hearing(reading) the whole story. I have had to use Nikon service 3 times over the many years & never had to wait long. 4 months???

Still I think if I shot for a MLB team I would have a back up for sure. In fact I would always have two cameras with me at the ball park with different lenses so I caught it all.(pun intended)
No sympathy here, sorry.

Here is some of Peter's hockey photographs form his facebook page. Funny thing is no Miami Marlins galleries of photographs. At least the WB looks dead on.
