I had owned a D800 for about 2 weeks and returned it when I discovered the focusing problem, and mine also had a metering problem.

I find it unbelievable that so many Nikonians are pining over not getting their D800s when so many other Nikonians have reported focus problems and are sending them back in droves to Nikon to have the defect corrected. It is even more incomprehensible to me that anyone would want to buy a $3,000.00 camera knowing that they may have to send it into Nikon for immediate service before using it without knowing whether or not the camera can be fixed in the near future.

I know that there are many of us who have, or think that they have, received flawless copies, but why would anyone risk $3,000.00 on this camera until Nikon gives us some answers?

Or to analogize, would you stand in line to eat at a restaurant when you knew that there was a 10% chance that you would leave with an acute case of Salmonella?

Maybe I'm missing something (and my wife assures me that I am).

Respectfully yours,


P.T. Barnum
