TimeTrial: Disappointingly, my serial is still coming up as not affected but the shutter is increasingly an issue by sticking when using fast shutter speeds, can't trust it at all now so will have to pay for a repair.

To be honest, I nearly did exactly that until I came across A D500 greatly reduced and decided to take the gamble on it and I have to say, I think it is an excellent camera so going to keep with Nikon for the time being unless that too develops a major issue.

Cheers, John

My shutter count is less than 3000, first noticed this issue about a year ago when my shutter count was less than 2000. I don't believe Nikon are doing the right thing or I wouldn't have to send in my camera to get an estimate to pay for something that is free for others. I have just printed off the return slips today and will send it in next week and find out how much they are going to charge me to fix it, any more than £300 and I will probably trade it in for a D810 instead as my confidence is low on how long the new shutter will last.

Cheers, John

Great video, really enjoyed it and it is making it more difficult for me not to get the D500. Cheers.
