I see this camera avaliable with this description I am thinking it has sand inside the body and viewfinder. What's your thoughts? Worth $450 Canadian.
Tried to get it replaced for the oil damage recall on the model but Nikon refuses and says that the sand the found on the camera is the reason they won’t. Camera works perfectly as is. Only problem is when you take pictures of pure white you can see spots around the sensor at f1.8 the most. At f6 you pretty much see nothing. Only seen on white background things but just lower the f stop and it won’t be a problem.
Actually there was no disclosure on sand in the camera just on the outside. They also said they are not sure if it is dust of oil on the sensor...
Cleaning the sensor is stupidly simple, buy a few supplies for the cost of sending it in once and it will last you for years. I'm about 1/2 way through my first batch of supplies and its been almost 6 years and 5 cameras, cleaned at least once a month.
