Yes - it's better than you got - because you did it wrong.

In Europe (EU) you are not a customer to Nikon or anybody else manufactorer - you are a customer to the vendor - and the vendor can't pass away you to the manufactorer - the warranty is the vendors responsability, so is the law (as you found out).

I think it is one or two "strikes" they got to repair (don't quite remember) then it is replacing.

And of course the warranty-cost is absorbed in the Price - no one gives it away - not that I have heard of.

If the vendor was trying to cheat on you, why blame Nikon.

I knew nothing about the consumer protection laws a year ago. These laws have fairly recently been introduced. I thought consumers were only covered by the t&c of the vendor. The vendor's (Amazon) t&c only state they state a 30 day return policy. I contacted them about the problem with the camera just after the 30 days were up and they passed me on to Nikon. The company Nikon outsourced the warranty repairs to, did not find the fault, so how could I ask Amazon for another camera if Nikon said there was nothing wrong with it?

The camera was covered by a 2 year warranty to repair any problems with it. The warranty work is carried out by Nikon, it is up to them and their subsidiaries to carry out the work.  The warranty is with Nikon.

The fact that Nikon did not find the top focus point fault until the camera's third visit to them IS Nikon's fault.

The fact that Nikon turned a possible slight back-focus problem into a massive front-focus problem IS Nikon's fault.

Nikon are the ones doing it wrong.

I am someone who much prefers to get things repaired than replaced. I get the impression Nikon would rather drive customers back to the vendor to claim under the consumer protection law than do any repairs under warranty.

Where do you get this two "strikes" rule?
