    Nikon F6 Reviews

    F6 SLR Camera (Refurbished) is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not what I expected The F6 is unquestionably a solid camera but this refurbed unit was not exactly what I expected. The illumination for the top and rear LCD’s did not work. Not a huge deal but it’s a feature I need and for this much money you’d expect everything to work like new. Also, the split rings that attach to the strap lugs were missing. Other than these two minor issues the camera looked and operated great. There were two rather noticeable scratches on the viewfinder housing but that’s about it. I decided to send it back and place an order for a new unit.

    question

    Is this refurbished by Nikon or at other repair shops? This being out of production I am concerned if fails without full 1 year warranty. Io are there other warranty options?
    Asked by: Murali R.
    Just to add to the previous reply, the Nikon F6 is not out of production. Nikon still manufactures the F6 and supports it fully. Also, I have purchased two DSLR's that were refurbished by Nikon and both were completely indistinguishable from their newly manufactured counterparts. I have had no problems in over 10 years of use and still use them regularly. Personally, any time I have the opportunity to buy a Nikon-refurbished item, I jump at it.
