I wonder what really happened here. I seriously doubt that there's anything wrong with the camera, and since it hasn't been registered etc, I think it's fine.

But... 1244 cycles. The D800 does only 4 fps, so that's more than five minutes with the shutter held down. It makes me wonder where 1200+ cycles came from. Not that 1200 cycles is much of an issue, I think the shutter is rated to 300,000. Still this is like a car with 700km on it, right off the truck. A good car today should be capable of going 300,000 km, so 700 is nothing - but how did they get 700km on it from the truck to here?
