Just saying that cameras could be thought of the same way.   Sort of like New is when the warranty period begins.

Cars acquire miles in the process of moving them off the assembly line, loading them onto transport, and moving them around a dealership. (snip) In most cases, a car that is used for demo purposes is sold as a demo. Some variation does occur, but you don't put a car in a box when going from factory to dealership.

It comes down to how honest the car company and the dealer are. Chrysler for instance let its dealers do what they want. And try to sell a slightly used car (with say 500 miles on it) as new they will.

Honda & Toyota puts a 20 miles limit on new cars: a dealer can't sell it as new past that mileage. And it's not supposed to be for demoing the car either.

And you wonder why I stopped buying American cars a long time ago.

But back to Nikon: Nikon has never clearly formulated a policy, something it should remediate, just like Honda and Toyota do for the cars.
