Ok I have a Nikon D200 and have had it just about a year. The worst experience ever... (had a D70 and D100 before without a problem). Take a look at the article I wrote, let me know what you think...

Get two houses, for safety.  If u have a full schedule, thats a must.  Ive never had any problem with Nikon for 15 Years. But  things can, and will happen.

Why do you open a second discussion about the same subject?

Ive also never had any problem with Nikon for nearly 30 Years (FE2, F3, F4, F801, F80, D70, D200 and last but not least D2Xs).

I've been using Nikons since 1972 and I've never had problems with any of them. started with a Nikkormat and I'm now using a D3. The Nikkormat still takes photos except the built-in exposure meter is dodgy (they had a strange carbon resistor ring system which wears out). The F801s I got after it works absolutely perfectly and I still use it for film photography.

Any brand, even the best, can throw up dud specimens. Doesn't matter if it's cameras, cars, washing machines, TVs, whatever. No manufacturing process is 100% sure.

Sounds like a significant part of your problem lies in not returning the obviously faulty camera immediately ...

I decided to keep it and deal with the issue. I noticed when I turned the camera off and then on the issue sometimes went away. After a couple months, I finally had some time to send the camera in

My idea also, why working with a defective camera at all.
Things would have been much easier if at first the camera would have been returned.

I work with Nikon equipment exclusively in the studio and outside.. never had any complain, except for that blinking green light on the D 70.  Returned it and got a replacement immediately.
