Nikon contacted me yesterday, after about a week of waiting for them to respond to my request. I'm not upset about that at all, I knew with the hurricane it would be hectic up there for awhile, but I'm just mentioning it. The Melville facility was off-line for about a week due to the hurricane - Thom H. reported on this today on his blog.
Anyway, they want me to send it back along with my 50mm lens that I tested with. They've provided a shipping label again, as they did for the 2nd repair attempt (this is my 3rd return for those who haven't been following along).
Wish me luck.
I did nab these shots with the D800 while in DC over the weekend.
