Indeed that's true, RKnecht. When I got a return receipt from them documenting what they did and what they found, I noticed a line in which the tech had entered that it appeared that the cover over the filter over the sensor was marked and that it would probably affect picture quality. WHAT After two years of taking some stellar, unblemished pictures with my D700, and, it being a cloudless blue day, I went out, set an Ap at f22 on my 28/2.8, 50/1.2, and 105/2.5 AI-S's and snapped away at a variety of SS's. Not a mark to be seen ANYWHERE, AT ANY LEVEL OF MAGNIFICATION. So, WTF?
I called, got a live person to answer the phone, put me on a brief hold, transferred me to the tech who did the work, who told me "oh, don't worry about it; many sensor filter covers have some sort of marking on them, and, when we check that box, that's what the computer prints out." My response was to ask well, should I replace it? and he asked if I had any problems with picture quality and, if not, "don't worry about it." I was enough relieved that I signed off on the call before asking him, "well then why the hell don't you program a better description into your software!!" Since I don't ever plan to sell the body, it's a non-issue for me.
