Technical Service Advisory for users of the Nikon Z 8 Cameras

Thank you for choosing Nikon for your photographic needs.

Users of the Z 8 camera have informed us that in some rare cases, a lens cannot be mounted on the camera because the lens cannot be rotated to the locked position.

Nikon will repair affected Z 8 cameras at no cost to the customer, including the cost of shipping affected Z 8 cameras to Nikon, as well as their return to customers, even if the warranty has expired.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this issue may have caused.
