I urge everyone who thinks this is a D750 specific issue to send their cameras back to Nikon, make sure you include examples for them to see. Then if you wait a day or two for your camera to arrive at Nikon Service and listen carefully, you'll hear laughing. Don't say I didn't warn you.


You mean the same place that refused to officially recognize the d600 issues or insisted that my d800 left af issue was "impact damage" and that they had never heard of it.

yea, I trust them.

Thanks for that. I take contre jour shots like that all the time so I'm out. (Unless there is a fix from Nikon)

Anyone want to bet any money this is one of the Nikon flubs that will go undeclared, unacknowledged and unresolved (much like the D800 SB700/900/910 flash AF assist backfocus issues)? Seems like they're on a 50/50 roll with bodies, d600/750/800/d4 have some kind of issue, d610/810/df/d4s don't. The D4 issue is minor (just a joystick falling off many bodies, nothing serious for a $5-$6k pro-class camera), the others are more significant.

I haven't had much experience with the D750 issue yet, but knowing me when I do encounter it (in a way that makes some important photos be useless to me) I will be annoyed.

”25 years of experience” he claimed - and then we see that he doesn't even use a lens hood!

If you shoot into the light, you surely know about the possibility of flare (after a lot less than 25 years!) and take the necessary steps to shield the surface of the lens from the light source – particularly when using wide angle lenses?

This does look like lens flare to me. Had it once with a lesser light source than sun:

It's not just hood-blockable lens flare, I've produced the effect myself (visible in a shot with flash in background) with the lens hood on my 35 f/1.4g. I just didn't find it bothersome in that particular image.

I believe that Nikon' response would depend on the outrage/response of the consumers.
If all of us started calling and sending in for repairs under warranty; Nikon may wake up and do something to resolve it. If we all fight each other and let the problem be ours instead of Nikon's then Nikon will keep it quite and keep milking the market.
If I am Nikon and read this post, I would just sit back and let my fans/share holders take care of those who are complaining as it is happening here.

Or there could be 10000 youtube videos all showing the same problem and making it a widely-known issue that will become very problematic for the D750 reputation.

I see that this photo was taking with a D700? (Nice shot, BTW.)

Did everyone get bent out of shape back in 2008, or is it a new phenomenon, to try to turn every imperfection into a complete failure?

From what I understand so far, an issue like the one people are running into with the D750 has been seen with other cameras before, but producing the effect/defect is usually possible only with a smaller number of lenses rather than just about every single one.

Therefore, though the issue has occurred in isolation or it can be reproduced only under extremely narrow circumstances with a few cameras, with the D750 it seems to be a much more easy-to-produce issue that can affect shots taken under normal backlit shooting conditions rather than just extremely specific conditions. Based on the frequency of the occurrence for others, and since I've experienced it myself, I would describe it as pretty easy to produce.

Am I going to stop using mine? Not right now. It's my only Nikon camera and the feature set is still the best overall combo for me.

I'm sorry, this is just another example of the 750 actually saving the shooter the trouble of anguishing over a shot. The flared is over the top & the photo is garbage as in 99% of the posted shots. The rest could be cropped to be saved.

Looks like it is on the bottom of the frame? It is much more common to see this on the bottom of the frame in other cameras, and is IMO not an issue for most shots.

I don't think this firmware would fix the problem we are discussing as its not listed in issues it fixes.

But thanks Anyway.

I read on another forum that a polarize filter removes the effect, anyone know if this is true?

I imagine anything which reduces flare/glare into the camera would reduce the chance of the D750's cut-off flare effects from being visible/noticeable. This includes filters, lenses with better coatings, etc..

Nikon email'd me back. Said to send it in. I asked if they were aware of the defect and what the fix was for it, because I don't want to send it in for nothing and have my time wasted.
