Re: B&H was fantastic

I think you are making some leaps of logic here. While B&H probably sent it in good faith, there is no way to tell why your camera has so many actuations. I think the most likely scenario is that Nikon had nothing to do with it. B&H accepts returns. They don't trash returned cameras. Nor do they sell them as used. They send them out to customers as new. I think you simply got a camera returned to B&H.

Since they accept returns. Return it to them. Have them send you another new camera. Repeat the process until you get one that shows only one actuation. Or, buy from some other store.

I can see how your own call on the probabilities might be correct. There are, of course, some leaps in your call, too. I understand that B&H takes returns. This camera has more than 10 times their stated limit of actuations for a valid return and came in pristine packaging. It's not possible to be certain where the oversight occurred. Your conclusion--keep swapping product til one works for 30 days--would be more compelling absent the current swell of issues with Nikon QA and CS. But thanks.  Food for thought.
