I Ioan,

If you divide the price of a new D700 by the 150,000 cycle shutter life expectancy you get the cost per frame ($.01466) then multiply by 29,000 clicks the depreciation is $425.14 making the value of the camera $1773.86 which is a little more than $200.00 less than you paid not to mention the significantly reduced warranty period.

($2199.00 / 150,000 cycles = $0.01466 x 29000 = $425.14)
2199.00 - 425.14 = $1773.86
Given the numbers, I would return it and pay the $220.00 for a new one.
Good Luck and Enjoy your Nikons!

Best Regards,
Marty
