    No scratches are dust should be apparent anywhere and no fingerprints.

    • The shutter count should have been ZERO.
    • You should have been prompted to "configure" the camera, time zone, date etc.

    Hi-tech manufacturers take great pride in having factory floors and the like as pristine and clean as possible and want their product to shine when YOU first touch it.

    You bought a camera that was USED. PERIOD. Either by staff or by a customer who bought it and then returned it.

    IMMEDIATELY, take it back.

    POST THE NAME OF THE STORE IF YOU DO NOT GET SATISFACTION. CONTACT NIKON AND LODGE A COMPLAINT.

    You might consider a big DISCOUNT. .... just a thought ... should you opt to keep it, but only IF they offer a discount.

    The bottom line, you bought as USED PRODUCT the store KNOWINGLY repackaged as NEW!

    The proper protocol for this item, if it was sold and returned, should have been to return it to Nikon for testing and refurbishment and resold as USED. This store pulled a FAST ONE.
    Or they just *gasp* made a mistake

If the business is a LCS I find it hard to believe the owner is not involved in the return process. Especially for a Nikon Z7. "Who's gonna know?"

    Returns have to be handled a certain way if you want to keep your business going. Something with almost 500 clicks on the shutter is well used. There is a story here and whether it was used in house as a short-lived demo, borrowed by someone in store to use for an event or sold and returned, it was not handled properly and you were sold something that is not as advertised.

    The options for it not being on purpose are small.

    I would return it first and see what they say and how they handle it. They may handle it immediately and without grief and no harm done.

    Otherwise, if not to your satisfaction, then call and report it to NIKON. What I absolutely WOULD NOT DO is DELAY DOING THIS! Get on it immediately.
