Last Friday night I was on a shoot when I attempted to insert my MC-30 remote trigger cable on my 3 wk old D800E, I noticed that something just didn't feel right and the cable would not couple with the socket on the camera, I looked at the socket and it was no longer in the center of the socket housing and it was slightly pushed into the camera body. I have done some research since Friday and have found that I didn't have to look very far to find others who have experienced the same thing as I. I first contacted Gary Camera the retailer I purchased this from and they said contact Nikon service, Nikon says they are not aware of any issue with this and yet I find multiple posts on various forums stating the exact same issue. Nikon says send the body in at my expense of course and they make an assessment as to the cause, implying that this may not be covered under warranty. I am very frustrated by this to have a camera of this caliber fail so soon, in an area the should never fail from normal use and then get the brush-off by the retailer. Just wanted to post here and possibly get some feed back on how you would proceed given this issue, I have written a letter of dissatisfaction to the retailer today and am waiting for a response, I was really hoping for a new replacement given the camera is only a month old. If that doesn't happen then I am left with no choice but to send the unit in to Nikon and be left at their mercy.
