Someone mentioned that Nikon might be selling refurbs as new. Surely they wouldn't do that?

I prefer not to speculate without the facts and tarnish the reputation of a ~100 year old great organization (founded in 1917) that too on its technologically breakthrough & affordable product (I admire them for taking the courage to launch the BLEEDING edge product - which Sony is still not dare to do even after an year).  I can understand it may not practical & financially a hara-kiri to sell all those returned D800's - it will flood the market. Even if they do, my only expectation is thorough quality check on its re-furbished products before delivering to sensitive markets (especially west).

At this point I don't care (brand new or fixed refurb) as long as the one I get on Monday works okay. Unfortunately it is coming again from the same lot/warehouse in TN (or nearby) where from I received last  D800E's - my hopes are low (I had requested Amazon to ship it from different location/lot - I was told computer picks it).

My current one is acting crazy again - the 70-200's LV&VF is not focusing at all (worked for couple of hours earlier this evening). Hope it will work in the morning for the celebration:(

I would have thought any returns would be sold as refurb and not new. If this is not the case, then technically that would be fraud.
