Nikon Z9 Recall

In General Stuff, Standard by Patrick

Nikon has issued a ‘Technical Service Advisory’ for its high-end Z9 full-frame mirrorless camera, due to select units having issues with the lens release button. According to Nikon, the lens release button, ‘does not function as it should and does not allow for rotation and removal of a lens or mount adapter from the camera [when pressed.]’ Nikon says ‘parts that do not meet our quality standards were used on some Z9 cameras,’ resulting in this issue.

Nikon doesn’t specify how many camera units it believes to be affected by this issue, but does say it has identified ‘a range of Z9 camera serial numbers (see image below to find your number) that may contain those parts’ and notes it ‘will address the issue’ by inspecting and replacing the affected components ‘as needed at no cost to the customer.’ Nikon will also cover the cost of shipping both to and from its service providers, even if the warranty has expired on the camera.
