Caution: Rave Ahead!
Yes RAVE, not rant.
My beloved Nikon D600 full-frame DSLR developed the dreaded spots-on-the-sensor problem. This problem is well known and Nikon issued a technical bulletin some time ago, and offered to fix the problem for free.
On May 26 I hit the Nikon website, read about the recall
, and printed a form and UPS shipping
label. Packed my D600 body only in a small box and took it to UPS.
On May 28 I received an email
from Nikon saying they'd received it, and would fix it for free.
On June 1 I called Nikon Technical Support and told them I was planning a long summer trip beginning June 19, and hoped they could speed up the repair. They promised to try.
Today, June 5, I received the camera
back. They'd replaced the problem shutter, cleaned everything, checked everything, and restored the camera to new condition.
All at NO CHARGE at all, not even for shipping
This is the way manufacturer recall's ought to work, and I can't say enough good about Nikon repair (in Melville NY) for the very professional and speedy way they handled my D600 repair.
