Nick when I shake mine it rattles also and it sounds like it's coming from the rear of the lens.

To be honest the rattling does sound controlled like it is coming from the motor.

OK, so maybe that's what I am hearing then and Nikon is right that this is normal.

I have a question are the new nikkor weather sealed lenses the same as with canon that the seal has to be completed with a filter?

I was out in the snow playing with my son taking shots with the d3s and 35G and I let my wife take a couple of shots and she took a direct hit from a snowball from my son right at the front element!!

I took it inside and wiped it and turned it so no water would get in just in case.

There was really no reason to close the thread. Probably could have been cleaned up. I could have deleted my posts too. Maybe we can ask the Mods to add a link to the original thread in the first post of this thread so at least we can refer to it if needed. There's some good information in there.

That's standard operating procedure here. Thread > 10k posts, close, start a new one. Typically though the new thread contains a link to all previous incarnations in the first post, which was probably just an oversight.

I read somewhere that really huge threads start to place a strain on the server.

It does happen with vBulletin sometimes due to poorly designed SQL queries, but it's not as big of an issue as a lot of people make it out to be... I used to deal with queries that touched millions of rows at once without issue, and I really don't see why a join on three indexed tables that returns 10-50 rows and with index limitation matches even say 100k rows would be a problem, but then again, having seen the queries vB creates against those tables, I can't say I'm surprised that it does! ;)

I wish they would open a Nikon section with various topics. Sure seems to be the following for it by both Nikon AND Canon users.....

Point the lens towards the ground. Take the read cap off, then give it a good shake. Let me know what you hear/feel.

I hear a rattle with mine also.

I am really impressed with the ISO capabilities of the D3s

It's apparently in progress with new software Pekka's designing, so it will happen eventually.
