Re: Assuming that the D800 plate is screwed into the bottom of the body, maybe the body points..

Oh yes there was a warrantee and I sent a copy of it with the original shipment.

I have written two letters and thus far there has not been any replies.

Your suggestion to talk to a manager is good but trying to get to one is frustrating and then getting to one that understands the problem and can make a useful comment near impossible. Would you know any person and their address?

Maybe if some of the nice guys on this site would write to Nikon telling them about this issue and requesting a comment about the event would produce some action. Ten letters on the same issue might make a company notice.

How about you write 20 letters? I would if it had happened to me (I have a d800e, and wouldn't have hesitated to use a tripod strap if it had suited me) - as I said, it's  a 3k camera- as per nikons own engineering you can support the camera body with a heavy lens on it's tripod socket,so  how were you supposed to know that a prime lens and a tripod attached strap would render the camera useless?  Call them every day til you get some satisfaction. get in touch with nikon worldwide, or nikon Japan. Send a letter from a lawyer threatening legal action. Ask the dealer who sold you the camera for a replacement- contact your local consumer rights group, register a complaint against nikon and the dealer-let nikon and the dealer know you registered a complaint- All of these cost you a lot less than replacing the camera. If you make enough noise for long enough, Im fairly sure they'll eventually want to make you go away- accept nothing less than a replacement. Squeaky wheel man.
