Where Oh Where is my Nikon D90?

I called Canada Post yesterday, after getting slightly worried about the fact that my Nikon D90 that I sent in to their Mississauga depot for repair still hadn’t shown up as delivered, despite waiting two weeks. The expected delivery date was last Thursday, and the lady I spoke with promised an investigation and would report back in a few days.

I also contacted Nikon to see if they had received my camera; perhaps Canada Post’s deliveryman had forgotten to check the item off as delivered.

I received a response from Nikon this morning. Apparently, there is no service depot in Canada at all, only two in the United States. That’s not what this Nikon page, which I was linked to to aid me in sending my DSLR in for service, says.

At this point, I have no idea where my camera is, although I certainly hope it is with Nikon Canada (which is at the 1366 Aerowood address I sent it to). I also hope it was simply some miscommunication with the service representative, who was unaware of the Canadian service depots.

At the very least, I want to have my camera back before I leave for Redmond in one month!

  1. I’d be all for going to the D700, except I feel like I wouldn’t be happy with any glass other than the 14-24mm and 24-70mm combo. That would set me back another $4k, not including the D700 itself. I don’t think I can swallow that, especially since I make no money (read $0) from photography, and don’t foresee that happening anytime in the near future.

    That said, I am looking forward to Nikon’s July 30th announcements. I may very well pick up a D300 (hopefully places clear it out) or a new D300s, if it’s worth it and if Canada Post or Nikon can’t find my D90. After more than half a year with the D90, there are some limitations I wouldn’t mind overcoming (no AF micro-adjust, better AF in the D300, 100% viewfinder). But at this point, I think I’d be just as happy to not need to spend any more money and just get my D90 back.
