Re: Shoulder strap ruins D-800

Couple things.

I visit this form almost daily but NEVER post until today.  I'm here today to warn others of a potential problem with the D-800 and not to do verbal battle with unin formed people who claim this couldn't happen.

Not being a frequent user I don't really know how to send a pix here.  Directly under the lens area I can stick the end of my scale into the gap and it gaps for about 3-1/2 inches along the front.  It is probably 1/16 of an  inch at the widest and I suppose I can cover that with electrical tape to keep the dirt out. 
   Whee  - an  almost brand new $3,000 camera held together with tape.  Yeah, I know I should have insured it.  Lets see I bought my first Nikon in 1968 and have had many cameras and lens since.  Now if insurance costs say $100 per year I would have spent $4,400 and this would be my first possible claim.  Dunno
