  • Well Nikon service continues to disappoint.  I got my lens back after two months.  I only took a few photos the first day, then took a bunch today and the lens failed after a few hours of ...
  • I don't have a Z9 and don't want one, but the quiet shutter is one of my most desired features and one of the few that will probably get me to finally switch with the next Z7 update.  I do mostly ...
  • Nikon's own support page says something like 3-5 days, if there aren't other issues like parts shortages. The parts shortage is the issue in my case. I know, nothing I can do about that, but it's ...
  • Another update.  I've contacted Nikon support three times since the lens has been in.  They've had the lens six weeks now and I still can't even give me an ETA.  Maybe I'll have a Z7 III before I ...
  • No, water damage is not covered under warranty, even if the water damage is due to their faulty product!  I've already paid to send it in, then I'd have to pay to have it shipped back if I don't ...
  • I was finally able to get confirmation that they are waiting on parts, but they still can't give me an ETA.  I have a feeling I won't see my lens again any time in the near future.  What incentive ...
  • Replied in Smaller Z9
    I've been waiting and will wait as long as necessary.  I'm not sure if I'd say I want a smaller Z9 or just a better Z7, but I think we are probably thinking along the same lines.  I expect an ...
  • 18 days and counting.  I asked support for an ETA and the response was that they couldn't give me one yet.  I'm 50+ years old and I can't remember ever sending anything in for a repair, and not ...
  • Never dropped or even bumped hard.  It's not just that the seal is broken, it's that the seal completely disintegrated and is falling out in pieces from behind the focus ring. It doesn't seem ...
  • $700 charge stands, and that's not including tax.  All they will say is they won't cover water damage no matter what.  Basically what that means is that every Nikon product you buy, regardless of ...
  • Finally a quick update on this.  I received an estimate from Nikon, almost $700.  I called service today and am trying to get this covered under the warranty.  Definitely frustrated with their ...
  • I'll go contrarian and say wait. I'll wait as long as is necessary to get something "better" than my D850, that is not the Z9. But, I'm more than happy with the D850. The things I want from ...
  • I've used it with the 1.4 TC III and I'm not impressed.  What gets me is that people always post some pics that are decent, in support of the combo being good.  I'm not saying it's impossible to ...
  • I went from a Tamron 150-600mm G2 to the Nikon 500mm PF, and it was a world of difference.  The PF was the most expensive lens I've ever bought.  I save all the time and pay cash for everything, ...
  • Created discussion thread Nikon 500mm PF problems
    Looks like my 500mm lens is going in for repairs.  Very disappointed that a lens at this price point is having problems in only a little over a year.  I noticed moisture in the lens a few weeks ...
