It seems Nikon D750 shutter issues are still plaguing the company 2 full years after it initially issued a recall on some serial numbers produced between October 2014 and June 2015. In another update issued yesterday, Nikon expanded the recall to include more cameras—specifically: models produced between July 2014 through September 2014 and from July 2015 through September 2016.
This issue first cropped up on the Nikon advisory page in July of 2015. At the time, Nikon claimed the issue—which could result in the shutter shading a part of your photo—was limited to units made in October and November of 2014.
Then, in February of 2016, Nikon expanded the recall to include units made between December 2014 to June 2015.
Today's update makes three, and expands the recall to include units manufactured between July 2014 to September 2014 and those made between July 2015 and September 2016. If you're keeping score, that means that affected units were being manufactured from July of 2014 all the way through September of last year.

As with the original advisory and the previous update, D750 owners can check to see if their camera is affected by using Nikon's serial number lookup tool at this link (EU readers click here). If your camera is affected, that tool will provide instructions on sending your D750 to Nikon for repair free of charge regardless of warranty status.
