I have had this camera for about a year and a half. When I turned the camera on after inserting a new CF card the camera flashed on and then went blank. All systems were dead. Sent to Nikon for repair and incurred a $200 bill. Since this was about a third of what a 5700 could be purchased for today I thought the bill was outrageous. I really had not used the camera that much and had not subjected it to abuse.

Any one else have this type of experience with the 5700?

If it happens again and Nikon does not take care of me in a better fashion I will call the camera a loss and never buy a Nikon product again.

Well what did you expect Nikon to do? fix the camera for free?

The camera was out of warrenty so they did exactly what there warrenty stated.

As far as changing to another manufacturer; they all operate the same way; when the warrenty period is up you have to pay for repairs.

Unless you purchased an extended warrenty through your retailer if offered.
