I did buy a D800E that had the focus problem (bought from Berger Bros.) and did return it rather than try to jump through the repair route hoops. However, I had to pay the shipping both ways and ended up out of pocket $136.00. That did not seem like a good result since the reason for the return was the defect in the camera. I am not faulting Berger Bros. but feel that Nikon should step up and help its customers who receive a defective product. In any event I don't regret returning the camera after hearing some of the really bad reports from those who have tried to get their cameras properly repaired. At this time I am more or less waiting until Crutchfield again offers double points, which will help recoup the shipping costs I had to pay. It appears that pretty much all the dealers now have the camera in stock.
