If you have been following the news surrounding Nikon and their newest DSLR the D750, you might have seen how there is currently a problem with the camera’s flaring. For more on that, check out our previous coverage on that story. Well despite the fact Nikon is repairing the cameras for free, it seems there might be more at play here as Amazon no longer has the camera listed (as of the evening of January 13, 2015).
This either means that Amazon is just being careful, or this issue is way worse than originally thought.
It doesn’t end there. If you have recently ordered the camera from Amazon, you probably got this email from the online retailer today (via Reddit user dihmad)
So not only can you not buy the camera, you can’t receive it if you purchased it recently from Amazon. Unfortunately, this doesn’t seem to say what is going to happen to the camera or when to expect shipment.
The thing is… that flaring issue is really, really minor. It only appears in very select situations on some of the D750 models on the market, and honestly if you’re seeing the flaring problem it’s likely on a photo that’s probably a “throw away” in terms of quality. Personally I think this is making mountains out of mole hills, but I did agree with Nikon’s decision to offer free repairs for those interested. It was the right thing to do. What baffles me here is Amazon’s reaction to the news. Either we aren’t getting the full story, or Amazon has blown this way out of proportion.
If you have your heart set on the D750, you can still get it from B&H, who has not removed it from their online store.
