If all checks out, leave with one of the camera - and to stop, following my own gut, overthinking this and to begin taking photos. The sales personnel - all photographers - understood, were supportive, and had no difficulty making the exchange. Is there a way to verify the serial number on the camera to ensure it's not a knock-off, refurb, but a legit D7100? I got the new shutter in mine a while back and it seems much improved. If it has been, it certainly doesn't show it. In some cases, there is also an embossed model number. Purchased and picked up a 610 from a local camera store and noticed the box wasn't quite pristine - nothing alarmingly torn, nor return tape marks, but enough to get me thinking about when the camera was manufactured by Nikon. You bet people are gonna line-up for a freebie like this, especially with all the news coverage this is getting.Next
With a serial number, you can double-check with Nikon to see if the lens you have is an original. There was no damage to the camera, and it looked fine. Bought from Amazon and delivered on Friday before Xmas. Here's Nikon's direct link to find out! That doesn't seem like a lot to expect. Consumers should always try to get a look at all these elements before committing to a purchase.Next
Its serial number starts with 25. They will let you know for sure. Hope this helps you in making your decision. HeroHaiZero edited this topic 78 months ago. Nikon merely has one set of serial numbers for each lens model, without regional differentiation. There are other threads open for such discussions.
The label on the box's side panel should contain the Nikon logo, the model number, and the serial number. That serial number scheme doesn't apply at all.

Shouldn't you post an image if you are claiming that you have oil on your sensor? He had the same sensor oil issue and called Nikon a few weeks after the service advisory went out. Originally posted 80 months ago. Purchasing a gray market camera may result in savings in the short term, but it costs more in the long term, as it is difficult to get repairs or updates. I now have a stack of unusable pics. I'm sorry, but if people are dropping over a grand on a camera body at the very least it should function as intended.Next
Attached are the warranty slip for my D7100, bought new in 2013. Mark Christopher Gonzales l Photography edited this topic 77 months ago. Gray Market' makes sense -- otherwise, what does it matter, unless you simply won't be comfortable paying and waiting. I enjoy working with them and know the big box stores are putting these types of stores out of business, and that is a shame since the salespeople work as professional photographers as well. The store was willing to cooperate to that level and i have little to complain about when it comes to their willingness to help me with all my questions about cameras, equipment, settings, etc. You can find websites that can give you helpful information about your Nikon lens.Next
Sweden Some spots on sensor after only slight use. As such, its basically had one lens on it the entire time. Finally gave up and changed to D800. Originally posted 79 months ago.
