I just got my D750 back from the shop at Nikon. I had to send it in because it threw an error code, that I could not clear, when I attached my long lens to it.

When you log onto Nikon's site to set up a repair you are required to enter a credit card for prepayment of estimated repairs with tax. My estimate came to just under $280. After a couple of days, I got an email, from Nikon, stating they were going repair the camera as a "good will" repair at NO CHARGE! So, i got the camera back repaired, cleaned, grip rubber replaced and firmware updated for no charge!

Just wanted to share some good news about a company when they deserve it. Kudos to Nikon!!!!:-D

Glad to hear that. Did they say what the issue actually was?

Well I think the heart of the matter was the Aperture mechanism. But yeah...I got a new shutter and grips too. Very kind of Nikon to do it as a good will repair.

Addendum:
Was out shooting a bit yesterday. It looks like Nikon reset my shutter count to zero when they replaced it. I now have 55 shots on the shutter. :lol:

Thanks. This is what happens when you live a little over an hour from the beach.:)

I wanted to read this whole thread but it's over 40 fricken pages long! Anyway, why is there a thread about this camera, one I've been thinking about for a while now, here on the Canon forum?

I hate, hate, HATE to admit the reason this camera caught my eye but I've been wanting to go full frame since the 5D came out but lack of need/use has kept me from doing that (I'm more of a hardware junkie than a true enthusiast). The number 1 reason I'm considering upgrading from my first gen Canon 7D to the Nikon D750 . . . built in flash. You see as a boat broker my camera gets used FAR MORE as a simple work tool than a true artist's tool. Those pics get stripped of their high res qualities anyway (so they'll fit on the sites' servers) so I should really be looking at better cell phone camera instead but I do have some raw talent and once in a while the camera gets used as it should (but not NEARLY enough).

So my question is should I quash this latest "hardware for the sake of new hardware quest" and stick with my 7D or join you guys with the highly rated D750? I WANT to do more with photography and I know I'd be good at it but for once I'd like my skill to smash into the limits of the hardware as opposed to buying the latest and greatest and just "imagine" I could live up to it's capabilities.

What say you?

To answer your first question, POTN is trying to expand it's horizons and not just be a Canon forum. To answer your second question, I've owed both the 7D and D750, as well as a lot of other Canon and Nikon bodies, and the two are light years apart in many ways besides the fact one is crop and the other is full frame. The D750, while it has had it's issues, is hands down the best general purpose full frame camera out there in my opinion. Not to expensive with features, IQ and functionality out the wazoo. One outing with a D750 and a 24-120mm f/4 kit lens and I sold my Canon 5D3 and lenses. I still dabble with Canon gear from time to time, as you can see from the photos I post, but I'm forever in the Nikon camp. The thing you have to think about is do you really want to make the switch. Lots of pro's and con's to research. I would suggest renting a D750 and spend some time with it before making the leap. Same for Canon, rent a 6D Mark II and see how it works for you. For your 3rd question, I don't know that anyone truly lives up to the capabilities or full capacity of their gear. It's a learning process that never ends.
