    The dar(k) side of D750 / Olympics

    Pleas laugh at mee, loudly, please do

    As an Norwegian, I shop worldwide for bargains
    Found a bargain in Seoul. An photo sold brand new D750 at discount

    That was back in 2016

    Now I see I didnt got my camera any cheaper than the cheapest stores at home
    Even worse, it was a K, a korean version.

    Now I need to find out, what is different with this and the normal US / EU versions???

    Should I rush out and sell my two year old d750 as soon as poosible ??

    I am very happy with it, and with that meike grip with remote I never miss that
    lack of wifi

    BUT, since it is a Korean special ver I assume I will never be at peace.
    So just sell it at a loss, get my paws on a used Norwegian d750 and live the life again ??

    This photo is of yesterfday, seems like that korean d750 is doing fine?

    I believe the bodies are all the same. Possibly the language in them varies, but the functions should be identical. It's the warranty you need to be concerned about. Here in the US, you can buy a grey market import from Japan. The problem is if warranty work is needed, Nikon US won't fix it. It would have to be shipped to Japan. So it simply means will your country's Nikon division warranty a Korean Nikon body? And even if it isn't warranty work, they may still refuse to do any paid repairs. That's what you'd have to find out. If not, then you'd have to pay to ship it to Korea if work is required.

    Well, as it might seem silly, I dont care about warranty.

    I have owned it for two years, since august 2016.

    So any flaws should have turned up by now.............

    And my d750 is not on the list of shutter recall

    All I need to know. should I sell it

    -------- just to get a Norwegian D750 ??+

    Nikon manufactures the D750 in Thailand. All of them.

    Mine too. Made in Thailand

    So what did they do for Korean d750s??
    Just removed the option "Wifi" in BIOS or have Nikon not put in the hardware needed in the body?
    If the first, some clever tech should be able to flash it back :-)


    Leave it there. Period

    I have just upgraded my D750 to the latest 1.12 without any issues

    my d750 is not on the recall list

    and

    my Meike grip and remote fixes the need for remote,
    and I have the WR-R10/WR-T10/WR-A10 Wireless Remote Adapter Set

    So all is well -- except for that k....

    Being curious, I looked up info on the Korean Nikon D750. This comes from the following link (you will need to translate the page then click on the tab for product specification):

    D750 | Nikon Imaging Korea

    ※ Domestic launch models do not support Wi-Fi function.

    @hark good sleuthing.
    I just read on a message board that the Korean model does not support WiFi.
    @Borga Voffe
    How bad do you want WiFi? I don't use mine, so I wouldn't care if it has that capability.
    Sounds like you like the camera.
