Re: D600 Shutter Replacement - How Long?

Read the Nikon announcement at DPR on 2/25, got my UPS label ready to go.  While preparing the body for shipping on 2/26, got an email direct for Nikon with the same info.  Nice that they were on top of it to registered owners.  Dropped it off at UPS store around 1:00 pm on 2/26, didn't hear from Nikon until 3/6 when I got a "received" email around Noon.  The note said no approval was needed on No Charge orders, so I didn't bother with a reply.  It also said a copy of the email notice would be sent by mail.  I was satisfied that it was in good hands and kind of forgot about it until I got the mailed notice on 3/11.  At that point I thought I'd check the status online, and was surprised to see it said "Shipped".  I clicked on the UPS Tracking link, and found it was scheduled for delivery the next day, 3/12.  Wow, this is pretty quick turnaround.  The UPS website did NOT say a signature was required, and even though I wasn't home, it was placed on my doorstep at 1:00 pm on 3/12.  Another nice touch: it was a plain brown package, and did NOT have "Nikon" displayed anywhere.  The included repair order had the same info as the others have posted, Replaced shutter, adjustments, firmware, etc.  I couldn't find my Body Cap so I sent it in without one, and they returned it wrapped tightly in a plastic bag, with no body cap.  I thought maybe they'd spring for a 50-cent item but no.

Bottom line:  2 Weeks, door-to-door.  I commend Nikon for the fast and free service.
