So it's official. My camera has officially been called a lemon. Apparently, problems like my camera is giving have never been seen before in it's model. EVER. So, I have myself a nice ripe lemon!!!
As you are probably aware, my shutter started locking up before Christmas. I sent it in to the authorised Nikon dealer, they checked it are replaced the shutter. It was just out of warranty, so I paid for it. $350! After all that running around and drama, I thought I had it back in my hot little hands, good as new.
Until SIX WEEKS later, when again the shutter started locking. I went a little narnies at the service centre, and Nikon, (who I must say have been DISGUSTING with their customer service!)
Short story, I demanded a loan camera while they again checked mine. That's been great.
They've just called to tell me I need a new sequence motor, Aperture control, and SQ base plate. NICE! After 10,000 shutter releases! DISGUSTING!!!!!
On the up side Camera Clinic passed on my little tantie to Nikon, and added a little more of their own, and I'm getting it replaced under warranty. Well Hmmmm, so I should! But Mr Nikon, Mrs Nikon and the other 5 people I have been calling and sending emails to for the past month... REPLYING WOULD BE NICE!
Last chance Nikon. Any more crap, and I'm jumping ship!
On the upside, I have a Texas Sheet Cake cooking in the oven :) YUM
