This afternoon while photographing a bird high in the blue sky,
I saw for the first time (after using my D800 for more than a year) a line running through the center of my screen. At first I looked at the lens I had mounted to see if it was scratched. It was not.
Moreover I have changed only 2 lenses since I've had the D800, and I can assure you it was always done with the utmost of care. All of my photos do not have this vertical scratch line.

I am utterly baffled how this scratch on the mirror got there.

Now that I know it's there it is annoying.

Any idea if this is covered under the warranty?
Any suggestions on how to proceed?

Thanks in advance.
