Nikon D750 Recalled (Again)

According to a report from PetaPixel and confirmed on Nikon.com, Nikon has issued a third flare-related service advisory for the Nikon D750, after the initial problem was reported in 2014 and a second advisory went out in 2016. This time, the advisory if for affected cameras produced in July 2015 through September 2016.

Nikon's service advisory page says, "We have received indications from some users that when photographing scenes in which a bright light source, such as the sun or high-intensity lighting, is at a certain position along the top border of the frame, flare with an unnatural shape may sometimes occur in images captured with the D750 digital SLR camera."
