If you are a D800 owner and have gotten or heard about a message from Nikon Repair stating that the rear casting was cracked and beyond repair, you might what to take a look at my experience and results. In short, I got this message with an unserviced D800 with no external signs of damage and only one known incident (fairly minor) involving an impact.

Rather than posting excessive content, details and photos here, I've posted more detail and some editorial comments on my blog which can be reached by the link below. I'd hope it will be helpful to those who may be trying to understand a similar Nikon diagnosis or those of you who might want ask whether you are walking around with a damaged D800 that you don't know about.
