work order placed cost of parts/repair. retail cost of it sounds expensive...no wonder their profit forecast has been reduced

Wow. If they're having to replace a third of the cost of the camera to fix the left AF issues, this may be part of the reason why they're not announcing anything.

in canada we always provide the actual cost even if it is under warranty and the client doesn't have to pay anything.

As a rule, I'm leery of listed repair costs. They inflate everything. You are probably looking at around $450 in actual cost. Still a lot, IMO.

Looks like they are saying "here's what it would have cost if you didn't have warranty", but then they deduct that cost because of the warranty. It's a way of showing what the warranty is worth, and discouraging you from buying grey-market.

I think it's clear and interesting (thanks for posting it!).

I suspect too many people undervalue the warranty. I wish more companies did this when processing warranty repairs, so we could see the expense we avoided due to having the warranty.

C means they have to disassemble the camera and replace parts. B2 is adjustments and calibrations. All previous reports from folks with left AF issue that I have seen (including mine) were B2. Since you got code C, perhaps they suspect something else is wrong with your camera as well, or they quote the worst case scenario just in case.

That's almost as much as the value of my D800E depreciated before I managed to sell it... coincidence?

Right after they stopped selling 3rd party parts Nikon started increasing repair prices. Not a problem under warranty, of course, but it's going to eventually have the effect of making used gear less attrative. Might be one of the benefits Nikon considered when they changed policy.

I think Roger hit the nail on the head. Not only can Nikon make more many that way, they will also encourage the sale of new items. Seems like win win for Nikon, but spend more money spend more money for us users.

very disappointed with the way Nikon has treated us with the d800 left af issue. Really sucks to cram it down our throats with an inflated repair bill that comes with a warning to not buy gray market. It is giving me a foul taste.

I do agree that he D700 is king of the hill, reliable professional workhorse with a tradition of outstanding service. Was it the same Nikon that built it? I think not, the D5100, D3200, D7000 are plastic soulless shells full of Sony electronics. The D7000 grip is too shallow and when gripped, the thumb rests on the video button. Some Sony/Nikon person thought the camera was a video machine so put the video button where the af button should me. Silly me for not understanding how the camera functions, I thought it was a digital still camera first.

My D7000 and all the Canon gear is sold. The Sony NEX-7 did not work out. My hunt for a camera is looking at Canon or Pentax K5. Very disappointed, I have a lead on a great deal on a used d800 but cannot afford malfunctioning pro cameras.
