I recently purchased a "refurbished" Nikon D2Hs from a reputable dealer. When I received the camera, I (of course) took an image and then checked the shutter count. My 'new', 'near mint', 'BRAND NEW operating condition' camera had 27,781 actuations! It also did not have the latest firmware installed! Warning flags went up immediately, so I contacted the dealer and (to their credit) they immediately offered a full refund. At the same time I purchased the camera I also purchased a 3-year extended warranty. Now here's the dilemma I'm faced with: (1) I can return the camera and try another one; (2) return the camera for a full refund; (3) keep it. I'm leaning heavily for option 3, since I will have a 4-year warranty; plus, even if I take 20,000 images a year, I'm still a long way from the 150,000 cycles on the shutter. Am I missing something? If I didn't have the warranty, I'd jump on the return. Plus, I really want the D2Hs. I think I know what the replies will be..keep it; especially since I'll have the 4-year warranty. Am I right?
