UPDATE:

THANKS FOR ALL THE COMMENTS....

Had my sensors cleaned while here in Atlanta on business at Camera Services in North Atlanta, GA....His company is a NIKON authorized repair center...for any of you who are in the area...or even want to send in work......Mr. Park is a 30 year veteran of fixing Nikons....great guy...loves to talk and teach.

I asked him what the "average" shutter life of a D700 he's seen...and 100K + was the well within range before a replacement to be considered...

I then asked him his opinion of the camera from a reliability and service....

His words (spoken in heavy Korean accent) - Very Strong - you will keep, long, long time !!!

He said, just bring in every few months for sensor cleaning, don't drop, and when the time comes, replacement of shutter...very easy....no problem...just put in another.


BTW, I am pretty rough on the equipment as it goes with me for fishing, beach shoots, etc...

My sensors were really dirty....this is my second cleaning since last year and I did not have any oil or issues....you need to take the time to be sure all your camera's sensors (I did my D7k and D700 for $80)...

Now, just another issue...as I mentioned to Mr. Park I live in FLL.....and asked about self cleaning using kits for sensors....his comment was.....don't do it !!! Not worth the problems if you damage the sensor....I know there are alot of people that do it...and maybe i'm a bit simplistic in my thinking...but, I tend to agree with Mr Park...he mentioned, "My tech's do this all day long with the right equipment. If there is a problem, the sensor can be potentially damaged"....for me, I'll probably stick with leaving it to an authorized service center.....

Looks like me and my D700 will be around for a while
