    Ok, Anyone else send in their D5000? Mine was one of the effective serial numbers, but I haven't had any problems with it. As my first DSLR, I have been very happy with it.

    They sent me a UPS 2-Day shipping label. I sent the camera out last monday, and haven't heard anything from them. I don't know how long it will take to fix. Anyone else send theirs in and have a time frame? I expect it back probably Monday or Tuesday.

    Today is such nice weather, it would have been nice to go for a hike and take the camera along. I guess I take my 10 year old Cannon point and shoot and see what I get.

    Update. Just got off the phone with Nikon. They say they need 7-10 days from the time the receive it to fix the problem.

    In reading my original post, it seams a little unclear. I sent it out this past monday (5 days ago). They received it Wednesday, processed it in their system on Thursday. That being said, it would ship from them either next thursday to the following Monday (Aug 10). I should have it back by Aug 12th. That's a long time, but will be worth it in the long run. I hope.

    That's not that bad considering I once waited 6 weeks for my Nikon P&S to come back from warranty service.

    Latest update. Arrived home this evening and UPS tried to deliver, but I wasn't home to sign. If I was home that would be 10 days without the camera. Hope this helps anyone else that needs to send theirs in.

    By the way, I put a note in with the camera to tell them to return it to my office, as I am always there to sign it, but apparently they didn't get it. I have called UPS, paid my $4.00 re-direct fee, and it will be delivered to my office tomorrow.
