#5. "RE: Surprised at the lack of posts here and the advisory"
In response to In response to 0

Hi - I am new to photography and to this organization so please bear with me on my lack of knowledge. I look forward to learning from you.

I left the point and shoot world by purchasing a D5000 in June. I was in a photography class and learned the metering on the camera was completely off. I then got the advisory - plugged in the serial number and voila - my camera is part of the recall. Thinking I wasn't affected I called tech support to try to resolve the metering issue - while talking to them the camera just turned off. I followed Nikon's advisory instructions and sent the camera off for repair. It was received by Nikon on Monday. The tech support team cannot tell me how long it will take to fix. Other blogs have indicated that the recall is massive.

It's a bit disheartening that my first experience with a DSLR involves a recall. I had researched the D5000 extensively prior to purchase and it seemed a great camera for the price. Also weight was a consideration for me.

Has anyone else experienced metering problems with the camera? Can anyone tell me anything else about the recall, the repair process, etc. I would also like to hear good things about this camera so that I don't feel too bad about my purchase.

Thanks
