Re: Cost for sensor replacement for D700

Nikon's all-or-nothing policy on repairs is annoying. I once had a D70 with a non-working pop-up flash. I didn't care about the pop-up flash because I rarely used it, so I never bothered to send it for repairs. Years later I had a problem with the AF module, so I sent it in to get that fixed. They wouldn't do that repair without also repairing the broken flash. So my choice was to get the camera back unrepaired, or pay an extra $250 for a repair I didn't want, just so they would do the repair I wanted.

That's the danger of Nikon's monopoly on repairs.
