Nikon partially recalling D800! Again.
2

I have just received this letter from Nikon where they offer me "free maintenance service" and want me to turn in my camera.

Now tell me have any of you EVER heard of a camera company that wants to check fully functional camera for free ? I have not
This is nothing but a recall cleverly disguised as "maintenance"
Here is full email I got from the today:
