HFLM: On Nikonrumors a response of Nikon can be found to one commentor:
"I am sorry to learn about your disappointment [...] however that we are aware of the this effect and Nikon considers it to be within the quality standards. When photographing scenes with an extremely bright light source (such as the sun or high intensity lighting) is at a certain position along the top border of the frame, this sort of visual effect is common and may occur when shooting using any digital SLR camera.Therefore it does not indicate a problem with the camera's design and we do not plan to implement any measures to address this."

For those who think the solution is to recompose and shoot again. Have you ever shot Drag Racing, NASCAR, Sunsets over the Grand Canyon, Basketball, Football or a Horse Race? If you have, you know there is no recomposing.

nerd2, the problem with the D300 is not a quality issue, it is more related to pushing to the edge the hardware and software. The hardware and software of today is well advanced.

This flare problem is a QC issue and if you've read any of the articles on this problem, you know there is a difference in the assembly between the cameras that have the problem and those that don't.

We aren't dealing with Nikon hardware that you bought and shot without sending it back for many years. This may be a random QC issue that spans many cameras. If I'm correct, they need to issue an alert to all registered owners to have them checked.

For this reason I didn't look at the D600 & now won't be lining up to buy a D750. In fact, Nikon has to do something great to get me back.

locke_fc: Can't be.

A few posters here have been telling us repeatedly this was a non-issue, or something every other camera showed.

A good friend has one and shot a number of photos on vacation. He didn't "Try" to make this happen but it did and now he has photos, with a band, that he can't retake. There are many once in a lifetime photos that can't be recreated and Nikon has blown their quality.

This is a serious defect and one that should give you pause about buying. I really liked the way his camera feels and was considering. I've been a Digital Nikon user since the CP990 and am looking to replace my rock solid D300. I hate the thought of relearning a system, but now I'm looking at Sony because I don't want to risk shabby quality.

How backwards of a company to even think of posting something like this. I'm shooting a D300 which has been bullet proof and would like to move to a full frame. After the dirt issue on the D600 I avoided that line. I was considering the D750, especially after the dpreview review. I've got a couple of full frame Nikon lenses but I can't risk the loss of a photo on shoddy build and an even worse Nikon response.

My cousin was looking for a full frame DSLR & he has used my D300 and liked the quality. I told him to look elsewhere until there was some time under the D750's belt. He ended up with Cannon and I'm so glad I didn't recommend Nikon.

IMO, after the D600 and now this, the only way to rebuild their reputation is to recall every D750.

MiamiStephen: Please, unshackle your readers from having to cycle through all of the pages to get to page 5, and then cycle through all of them again to get to page one. This new format is the first "improvement" that fails completely. I'd rather read a review of a film camera.

Amen!
