    Nikon issues recall of battery packs sold with D800 and D7000

    That link takes you to the Nikon USA announcement. If you have one of these batteries, contact Nikon Australia.

    Thanks Rick. It's actually the D7000 not the D700. Anything using the EN-EL15. Luckily mine is fine.
    Cheers,
    Ian

    All the 7's: D700, D7000, D70

    Yeah, this service announcement was issued about 2 month back for the EN-EL15. I received this announcement not long after I purchased my D800 and have already replaced the battery.

    Yeah, but it seems in the USA it has been voluntary recall till now, and that they have upgraded it (to whatever the level is above voluntary) recently

    Mine went back on Friday (D7000), they even sent a courier to my door to pick it up and it has to go back via by Sea from Tasmania as they regard them
    as to dangerous to fly!!! Bit of a nuisance while waiting for a replacement though.
