Over the years, I've taken a lot of heat from members for voicing my concern about Nikon and other camera equipment brand products' quality control issues. Many have taken the position that there simply aren't any and that I'm making it up. Fortunately, more recently there are a variety of professionals that are also posting about camera equipment quality problems, including Roger Cicala, owner of LensRentals, and Thom Hogan, who should be familiar to most of you. In the last couple of days, Thom has posted his concerns with the D800 and its quality control issues. Of his sample base of 12, 6 have at least one problem. Rather than attempt to detail his experiences, I'll refer you to his primary home page where he posts about it. Of note is his most recent reply today, June 19, to emails from his readers regarding how the D800 quality issues compare with the D7000 quality concerns when it initially was available. Note that in this article, he mentions a personal problem rate of 10% with bodies prior to the D800, which has a much higher rate. Here's the link:
