Last month I reported a broken 10 pin connector on my month old D800E, this happened while gently attempting to couple a MC-30 remote shutter release cable. Well I sent the camera back to Nikon service on 12-23-12, given the holiday week involved I am rather impressed with the speed at which they turned it around. I will receive it tomorrow, Nikon shipped it overnight air via UPS. The camera was repaired under warranty, the only cost which I endured is the ship to insured $72.
I sure hope that the fix will remedy the problem and this camera doesn't fail again.
