Yep, followed what shipping protocols Nikon mentioned; sounds like it may be time for a follow up call to Nikon. I would try to be civil with them so they don't put your camera at the bottom of the repair list.
I registered my D750 with Nikon USA two months ago, I don't know if having it in their system helped speed things up or not.


Mine is registered too. I just absolutely despise incompetence. *shaking my head

I'm going to call Monday. according to their web site the work M-F.

Well It seems everyone does NOT get an email confirming their camera is in the shop.

I got home from work today and my camera was sitting on my kitchen table. :shock:

I feel rather foolish for complaining so vehemently about Nikon and their "incompetence", but I still have never been contacted that they even received the camera. The only record of the Nikon getting it was the UPS signature form.

I don't know what happened, but I'm glad it's back. :)

This is what was written on the paper work. No interpretation by me...

RPL FRONT BODY
GENERAL CHECK & CLEAN
ADJ MIRROR ANGLE
ADJ AUTO FOCUS OPERATION
CLN CCD

Thats everything that was on the repair order.

First one sounds "substantial" if it is what it sounds like. I was thinking they would just make some adjustments to the AF unit. I guess service is not that simple.

Well, I received my D750 back this morning from Nikon. Quickly tested my D750 + 50 1.8G out in the two areas in my house that I could easily replicate the flare issue; I can say that the flare issue has been completely resolved. Very happy with the job Nikon did, of course I never had a single photo that showed any flaring in the first place, but still, it is nice to know that I don't have to worry about any unwanted flaring popping up in the future.

Sent mine in last week. Got to them the next day since i live so close to the Melville repair center. They logged it in and sent me an email saying no charge for repairs. Just waiting for it to get done and come home.

Hi Guys, Just a question regarding the flare issue on this body. Does the flare issue only shows on Nikkor lenses only?

Will there be a big problem, hardware or mechanical, if I do not return it for repairing in Nikon? Because I don't get the flare issue on my tammy 24-70.

Thanks,
Christian

If you don't see the flare issue the only other reason I can see is if you ever plan to resell in the future. Potential buyers will want to know if it's fixed.

I'm sorry for off-topic question;
I was reading this thread and I'm thinking to get the Tamron 24-70 f2.8 for my D7100. I need f2.8 for sports shooting in low light gyms.
At the moment I'm shooting with my old Nikon 35-70 f2.8 (non D). It's very sharp lens (at least my copy) with good colors and contrast but lacking in some areas. Shooting at home with flash is not so great and the lens became somehow soft from 60mm to 70mm. I don't know if it's worth to spend a few 100€ for repair. I would also love to have VC for video.
Reading all those reviews on the net how good the Tamron is, I was about to buy it. But now I'm in doubts, if the lens is not as sharp as they say.
I would appreciate any help or comment.

I used the Tamron 24-70 on my D600 and D610 and it was as sharp as the online reviews say. I haven't tried it on my D750 yet as I only picked up the D750 a week ago.

On a crop sensor you'll be very happy with it.

Tamron has some QC issues but getting better than before. If you get a good copy then it's good.
I have 24-70 VC in Canon and Nikon mount, I like this lens.

Nikon is slightly sharper in the corners wide open, but also has NO VR and has noticeable coma.
It focuses faster. It is longer than the Tamron and I like how the Tamron balances on the camera more than the Nikon.
Nikon extends when you are at 24mm. Tamron extends at 70mm.

Tamron better for star photos and the VC is great.

Tamron better for me. If you need the slightly faster focusing then Nikon is your ticket.

I also own the Nikon 24-70 and the Tamron is the one on my camera all the time.
Will probably sell the Nikon at some point.

One thing no one has tested (of course, why would you test this) - I manged to scratch a front element with a lens cap for the Tamron.
I have not done this to any other lens so... not sure if it's just me or if the coating sucks on the Tamron.

That could be random, I know that on my previous Canon 17-55 2.8 I took the filter off that I received when I bought it second hand... yea big mistake, not less than 6 months later when using a microfiber to clean some haze off the front element (rapid temp change) it put a couple small scratches into it (I guess there must have been some particle on the lens or microfiber).

With the lenses I have bought for the Nikon system I am placing a filter in front. B+W MRC's are worth the next to miniscule changes in image and the slightly increased chance of flare imo.
