Incorrect. In this particular instance Nikon is obligated. You have taken true information regarding Nikon warranties and used that to post a false assumption about the D2H metering advisory. The service advisory for the D2H metering problem applies to the camera and does NOT require that the current owner be the original owner. I spoke with Nikon Service about this specific issue prior to buying my D2H used. In addition, for those owners (original or not), with an out-of-warranty camera that had already sent their D2H in and paid for the repair prior to Nikon making the repair free, Nikon has agreed to reimburse them for what they paid.Let me be the voice of dissent over here. Nikon warranties (and consequentially service advisories) apply only to the original buyer. Yes, this is a scam that too many manufacturers engage in, but it is legal and we know about it upfront. So technically, Nikon is not obligated to cover this free of charge.

"Q: I have already experienced problems identified in this advisory and sent my camera to Nikon Inc. for repair. Because my camera's limited warranty had expired, I was charged for the repairs. Am I entitled to a refund for those charges?
A: Yes, please provide Nikon with a copy of the Nikon Inc. repair receipt associated to the previous repair. Your repair receipt copy must include your camera model and serial number. Send it to: " http://www.nikonusa.com/Service-And-Support/Service-Advisories/Frequently-Asked-Questions.page
