So I had the rather unpleasant experience last night of seeing my brand new D600 + 24-70 f/2.8 fall over on the tripod it was attached to and smash onto some concrete. Once I'd wiped the tears away, I discovered that the lens seemed fine (the hood is cracked but still usable) but the body is cracked in two places; on the front panel, top right of the lens mount and the top panel just below the settings dial. I think the damage is just superficial as I've been using it today and it's been fine, however I was to get it fixed if possible as it's now no longer weather resistant which is pretty important.
I wondered if anyone has had any experience with having whole panels replaced on mid/high end Nikons? In particular the top panel as this seems to hold the flash and various dials which I'm guessing will all have to be changed together. I just wanted to get an idea of cost and repair time/quality..
