Roger - That's a thoughtful response to my rant. I also didn't include, I am an NPS member (until they drop me for saying things like this) and cannot elicit a response -- a Hi, a Boo or a simple direction as to where I can go. This is not a good business plan. Don't get me wrong. I have used basically nothing but Nikons since I got my Dad's Nikon S 50 years ago and I have gotten amazing results. But I'll say it again: Nikon refuses to communicate when there are problems -- to advise people on how to check to see if it is the camera or themselves -- anything. I was shocked when they owned up to the focus issues on the D800/800e family. I have one, which appears fine and another incoming next week. So I hope the troops in Sendai have this sorted out by now.

But back to the D700 hot shoes: I use nothing but Nikon SB-800 flashes and am currently having a third hot show replaced on one of my two D700 bodies. My cure, which I will continue with the D800 cameras, is a flash bracket that takes the load off the hot shoe and improves lighting -- but adds weight and bulk.
