Johno, I agree with you.

I don't think Nikon owners expect zero faults when they buy their camera. What we do expect after paying $3000-$3300 is that the camera should focus properly, that the memory card slot cover should not have to be held in place with tape or glue, etc., and if a manufacturing fault arises that they deal with their customers with honor and respect instead of denial and incompetence.

I for one will never buy another Nikon product unless it is on the market for at least a year and that any manufacturing issues are resolved to the customer's (not Nikon's) satisfaction. In fact, I may have made my last Nikon purchase, because I don't like to support a company that does not support its customers in a time of genuine need. I feel very badly for D800/800E owners who trusted Nikon's quality, bought early, and are still struggling with Nikon to get their cameras right.

Stan, believing in Nikon blindly at the time of purchase is a big mistake today. Nikon credibility/quality is not what it used to be years ago. Back then, I never went through hoops testing my Nikon cameras and lenses because I knew they would work and never had to return one of them because of a manufacturing defect. If you had gone through Johno's experience, I doubt you would be singing Nikon praises.
