>No official statement. Just what Nikon-Germany told me. > Seems odd that Nikon released a statement admitting there was a problem, weak and vague though it was - but don't announce that the problem was corrected.
I think whoever you spoke to was as informed as the rest of us - as in not at all - as Nikon is not really about being transparent. Probably the companies main weakness amidst a sea of strengths.
