    I want to change from DX to FX and have been dreaming, saving, and scheming to buy a D750. All the things I read or viewed at first were very positive. But now I am hearing about a string of recalls and shutter problems. Should I be wary of buying this camera?

    I wouldn't buy one. However, there is no questions asked policy in place if you have any issues with the camera at all. I know someone who has had theirs in twice for shutter problem. He recently sold it, well traded it in actually.

    Okay, it's 50/50, and I'm back where I started, lol! So, buy a D750, yay or nay? Which other camera should I buy if not the D750?

    There was a serial number range for the problems with the D750.
    I bought mine new from BestBuy last year and have had no problems, my serial number was also outside of the list.

    No piece of electronics are without issues, unfortunately. If you like the feature set of the D750, buy it.

    I bought a used D600. It's shutter spits oil. Nikon fixed it for free. Because people are scared of it spitting oil (and evidently the 9 days it took Nikon to fix the problem for me...), I picked up FF camera for $700.

    Nikon does a decent job of recognizing flaws/defects and fixing them for free.

    I think it has been long enough that the cameras from the production line now have updated components! I would not worry about it. There is one for sale on this forum from a member for a very good price BTW!!!

    I would buy one if I didn't already have a Nikon FX

    The Angry Photographer is a strange cat, yet oddly compelling when he isn't just flat-out irrational (which happens from time to time).
