codeNsnap: Thanks for the proactive response Nikon.
@RichRMA,belle100 You are probably non-engineers who have no clue about the kind of complex hardware and software behind modern DSLRS. Because if you did, you will realize that there million ways in which these systems can fail and you would have _probably_ agreed that as long as the vendor acknowledges and fixes the problem in a timely manner it should be OK.
Its funny how some people are unhappy if Nikon acknowledges (and fixes) a problem and also if Nikon does not acknowledge a problem.
PS - just verified that my D750 is not affected.
Thanks for the proactive response Nikon.
codeNsnap: Dear Nikon,
Have a very small feature request for the D750 – a setting to prevent the LCD display from turning on when the ISO button is pressed. The ISO value is always visible in the top LED screen and the viewfinder display. Always turning on the LCD display when ISO button is pressed is unnecessary and distracting for some of us users; so it would be nice to have an option to turn this behavior off. Given the positive direction in which Nikon's customer service response is recently going, I really hope this simple option will be a part of this/next firmware upgrade.
I too have the movie record button configured for ISO.
Thanks Nikon ! I'm glad I did not jump ship to Fujifilm.
Thanks Nikon ! If you can clarify that the newer bodies are not affected, people like me who have held off their decision to purchase the D750 because of the issue can go ahead and purchase it...I had nearly jumped to Fujifilm and I'm glad I waited :)
codeNsnap: Bummer...my Christmas self gift has to be put on hold now. Will wait for Nikon to confirm that flare issue is indeed fixed in newer bodies or confirm that the issue is specific only to certain serial numbers. It will probably be a long wait.
@sandy b - the link is taking me to the main PL article. Can you please clarify which comment you are referring to ?

codeNsnap: @dpreviewCan you please clarify the meaning of "same OLED viewfinder display.". Does the D750 have the same size viewfinder as that of the D810?
Sorry for sounding dumb, but I really want to clarify this since I plan to buy it for my birthday on Sunday.
Same dimension and specification, but it only does not have the round shaped viewfinder?

codeNsnap: Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?
OK..so only the DX mode benefits from the battery pack..did a quick search on D800 and its FX fps also did not benefit from the battery pack...
Can someone please clarify the fps in FX mode with battery pack?
codeNsnap: Any news of a fast 23mm from Pentax ? Would have considered K3 over Fujifilm XT-1 if there was a fast 35mm equivalent option for K3.
@DDWD10 Unforfortunaly the Sigma would be a bulky option for my use case :(..BTW can I ask you why you returned the XT-1 ?

codeNsnap: In contrast this is how Fujifilm reacted within about a week of the XT-1 flare reports -
I'm not sure if Nikon will learn anything out of this D600 debacle.
Sorry I didn't follow the orb issue closely. But I know that they replaced the sensors for those camera owners. In any case, at least in the last two years they seem to be very customer focused company with their firmware updates and product enhancements. It is possibly that have embraced their kaizen philosophy recently even more. At least it is change in the right direction for the customers.

Galbertson: Well, have reached my limit...or patiece..to continue my hopes of getting into x-t1. I truly was beginning to believe i could overcome non tactile rear tiny buttons. But this breaking news of light leaks has forced me to lose faith in fuji. Just gotta move on to sony a7, maybe a6000.
By the way, before you tell me of sony's own light leaks, at least theirs was in relatively common area around lens mount, fuji's from side of camera, flap. Whereelse in body is a failed part? Not willing to wait to find out.
They have acknowledged the problem and are proving free servicing now -http://translate.google.com/translate?sl=auto&tl=en&js=n&prev=_t&hl=de&ie=UTF-8&u=http%3A%2F%2Ffujifilm.jp%2Finformation%2Farticlead_0251.html

Damn. Wish it was the D400 or D710/D800S release instead.
