I just purchased my D5000 at the end of June and was going on a 26 day trip to Europe. On day 5 my camera died, I thougt it was the battery. A dead camera with 21 days to go, through some of the best places to visit for photography. I called my dealer since I purchased lemon-aid insurance and they sent me a new body with a freind that was coming to Europe and I hooked up with them to get my new camera. If I was not able to get this new camera I would be pissed off in a big way. My brother in-law sent me the recall notice while I was travelling and that's when it all made sense. I checked both serial numbers and both bodies are recalled, they are selling defective cameras
. I'm lucky that the second camera worked for the balance of my trip. Could you imagine missing pictures from: Cinqueterra, Lucca, Pisa, Florence, Sienna, Tuscany, Amalfi coast, Capri, Pompei, and Rome. I had already missed taking breathtaking pictures from the Dolomites and Venice, bummer.
