#4. "RE: D700 Warranty question" In response to In response to 0 Sat 12-May-12 02:52 AM by ZoneV
My friend has the warranty on his current D700, and it's about to expire. He's a full-time shooter right now. He was among the first to buy a D700 when they came out. Then about two years ago, the camera met an untimely end during an accident on location. It was water damage, so Nikon didn't pay for it. He had to buy a new camera himself. This time, he bought the extended warranty with it. He has used this new camera moderately hard for a few years, and is at 150,000 shutter cycles or so. I keep telling him to make sure he sends in the camera for warranty service before the term expires. They will make it like new again. For him, the added cost will probably be worth it.
An undeniable paradox: To think that there is any such thing as an absolute rule is at worst naïve, and at best, shortsighted. There is no such thing as an always-true, all context- or situation-salient, absolute rule that always holds true…including this one!
