I've had more than a few serious issues with my D800E and now I can join the thousands that have broken 10 pin connectors..  Unfortunately I use the 10 pin a lot so I'm kind of over a barrel. Add another $300 dollars to the cost of the D800E..

Good luck with the repair, Arlon.  For what we spend on gear, we certainly expect better quality.

Geez. Sorry to hear all that.  Nikon needs to reclaim the mentality it had when the F4 was designed.

 

I was thinking of upgrading to a D810 or D750, but I think I'll stick with what I have for now.  I know that the D610 is supposed to be made with less than perfect components, but I haven't had a problem with it, and my D1X is still shooting like it was new.  Plus I have four 35mm film bodies on which to rely as backups to my backup.  Gonna put some film in the fridge.

==========================================================
Digital: D610 backed up by a D1x.  Quoted from an unknown source by a fellow planeteer, "Never get rid of a working D1x." I've got to agree.

Film: N90s, F3, F100, F4s, C330s. A few lenses.

Why film photography? I like shooting with the equipment. 6x6 Velvia slides from a C330 have an appeal all their own.

Why automated 35mm/Digital cameras? Event photography is about capturing moments. It often requires quick response. Well done automaton can be your friend or your enemy. It all depends on knowing what it can and can't do. "A man's got to know his (camera's) limitations." paraphrasing Dirty Harry...

Bummer. I used to think the best missing feature on the D7100 was the 10 pin that accepts the MC-30 remote. I really liked it on the D300. Now I'm rethinking that. I didn't know it was a common problem.

Still shooting DX digital and don't plan on going full frame.
