Admittedly a couple of years ago. wim I don't know, I'll have to call when they reopen tomorrow. But I rethought what I wrote before. I think it's different hare because my second box is unsealed as well - everything inside looks good, waiting for the batteries to power up. Noreaster expected tomorrow but we may get rain instead of snow so I'll have to set up stuff in the house to photograph. Now that I've sold most of my Nikon equipment it had better be in good shape. The people at B&H are always very helpful and spend time on the phone or in person to give me advice, so I think they must use different packaging in the US. The photos I took before the mode dial broke on my first one are gorgeous though I realized after that the sensor was dirty. In 12+ years I have never had sensor issues - but the same large mess showed up on all of my photos taken with various lenses from photo #1 onwards. I hadn't seen it at first because it was hidden in tree branches - I had only actually processed two photos completely and quickly - sunset "weather" images for live news done quickly - spending time getting to know the camera - before having to send it back - but when I saw a mess in some skies I checked all my images and it was in every one - with four different lenses and always in the same spot. I had returned the camera already. Here's are a couple I uploaded as US/NY Weather photos to Live News, have to say I like it at night: Hope I won't be uploading more of these tomorrow: Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
