Okay, first post after a pretty decent search of the site for similar issues.
I sent my D4 camera back to Nikon because the dust on the sensor was unbelievable. I do change lenses, but the amount of dust in there was astonishing, and the local dealer told me that the pollen in the area was probably to blame. I used a blower on the camera in the mirror up mode (Blower tip did NOT go past the f ring. The dust would not go away, so I sent the camera to Nikon since the camera is still under a year old knowing they would simply clean it and send it back free of charge.
So, I'm on a month long trip to Germany with my back-up D800E, and get an email from Nikon that the sensor is scratched. Only Nikon has been in the camera before. Nikon told me that the sensor had to be replaced. I ok'd the repair and asked that the sensor be returned to me.
The sensor is back and so is the camera. I looked at the sensor that was replaced, and it looks to me as though it is oil that was blown across the sensor rather than a scratch. I'm looking for advice as to who I can send the sensor to to be looked at professionally because I'm of the opinion that Nikon did not do me right.
Any advice, I'd appreciate.
p.s. Repair total was $1,223.54. Yea, I still want to throw up.
