    Nikon, this is how you handle a production flaw. Take the product off sale immediately and offer immediate repair/replacement as soon as you’ve fixed the issue. Not just deny it for as long as you can before your hand is forced by class action lawsuits.

    Everyone makes mistakes, but it’s how you handle them that matters.

      Yes, I agree completely.

      Sure… buit why does Sony keep making THIS mistake?

    So they have production badge of around 1000 pieces. Looks like they don’t sell them to much.

    • Zos Xavius

      At those prices they won’t sell many. Not many people have 3k to blow on a fixed lens compact.

      1000 $3000 fixed lens cameras in 1 month.
