I think that camera just became a tchotchke. Repair is probably going to be far more than the camera is worth. Send it to Nikon for recycling, or use it as shelf decoration. They are going for less that $300 on ebay.

As I understand it, the camera works just fine. Yeah, there is this crack, and something caused it. But, the owners indicates this has not affected the functionality of the camera body.  I'll know better after I get a look at it.

You are saying however, that the crack is in a portion of the body that is made of alloy and not one of the plastic sections.

Yes, you are right, the crack is in the alloy.  I can see no signs of what might have caused it.  In later threads, you will see that I actually bought the camera (see photos in later threads). Works perfectly and aside from the ctack, the camera is very clean.
