How hard is it to send in a copy of the receipt with the gear? Seems like lots of folks these days think the rules are for made for others, not them. If you read the linked article, Thom says he has been saying for years to send in a copy of the receipt. Nikon's Service site says send the receipt. Gotta love people who don't play by the rules and complain they aren't getting good service.
I've been shooting with Nikon since 1962 ("F") and only had to use Nikon service once - for a D-700 that got rain soaked. I followed their service instructions, didn't call and pester them, got my camera back good as new in 3 weeks including UPS ground both ways.
