Deteriorating NIKON




This Nikon Z7 is only about one year in my hand. Camera is functioning normal (like other camera such as D850, A7R4 etc) though, this camera started to show its own deterioration. = such as covers of the connecting points expanded and no longer works as a seal cap (Photo above left). Its skin started to fragmenting (Photo middle) and the cover for the memory card chamber started to expand the size (Photo right) = may not work for dust or water seal any more.

I reported this to Nikon asking their help more than 10 days ago through their web site though, no response at all. = it seems the most serious deterioration Nikon is having is their system / communication / customer care.

I don’t know whether their move of the office from the Richmond to Surbiton was for a cost cutting or else, cutting the meagre cost of plastic material couldn’t make much savings, I think. The one thing clear was, like any other camera manufacturer, Nikon’s financial position is very bad too = may be as such bad try to save a penny from the price of plastic.

By the way, don’t forget, I’m not talking about their cheap toy camera, but it is the 3,000 pound made in Japan camera. = I should be treated with a suply of bit higher quality plastic.

The decent quality plastic should last many many years — the plastic cover on D850 or EOS still keep its shape perfect (after 3 years, 5years) —– is the Nikon quality became a myth now ?
