"RE: Reported D4 problem"

There are numerous ways a cam body can be misaligned and locked into an F-Mount. As I mentioned, the most likely problem is that a massive lens is misaligned while mounting a lighter weight cam body - and the photog's ego blames the camera and lens as opposed to operator error.
I have used the F5 body which weighs in at 42.7 oz and the D3x body which weighs in at 43 oz and the D4 which is a lightweight 41.6 oz and the D800 which is almost too light at 31.7 oz. Your 300mm lens weighs nearly 6.5 pounds compared to your D800e at less than 2 lbs. When you get a chance to use to the Nikon 400m lens that weighs over 10 lbs, you will see how easy it is to jam the lens onto the cam body, if you are not careful. good luck
