I have had my 8800 for 5 months and have been very happy with the photos I take with it, but recently I have noticed orange streaks in the viewfinder that don't appear in the photos. They only occur on sunny days at wide angle. It doesn't matter if I face away from the sun, across the sun, or otherwise. The streaks disappear if I zoom in some, or go indoors , or if it is very cloudy. Has anyone else noticed this in their camera, is it normal or something I should contact Nikon about?

Sharing one of my favorite photos showing no orange streaks in the photo like I get in the viewfinder in bright sunlight.

I have the same problem, among other things.I should add that the straking persists in video clips, but not the photos. I just returned my 8800 for repairs (for the second time) and was refused warantee on it by Nikon. Apparently it is caused by the oxidation of a little screw inside, and entirely my fault.

I will let you know how it turns out. I just finished an angry letter.
