    I Did Do Anything Different Than I Have Been Doing---Went To Portland (or.) NEVER Ever Took It Out Of The Car--- When I Came Home Went To Use It, Sure Looks Like It Is Fogged To Me---Found Out It Takes 2 Mo. To Fix It IF I Have To Ship It---ANYONE Ever Heard Of This Happening To The D40x??????????????

    Your post hurt my eyes.


    Just take off the lens and leave it sitting in your room for a day.

    Are you sure that it's fogged and not just smudged? Sometimes my viewfinder gets dirty enough that it looks fogged until i wipe it off.

    Just a thought.

    Rapid changes in temperature can do that just like a pair of glasses fogging when going from cold to warm moist air (was your car a/c on?). It will take a while to "defog" due to the limited ventilation in the camera/lens.

    When going from cold outside to warmth in a building or vehicle, put your camera in a bag, then put that in another bag (like a trash bag) so you'll have a vapor barrier.

    Just a word of general advice:

    Do You Have To Type Everything Like This, Because It Makes It Really Hard To Read.

    Seriously, you may find you get some bad responses in future threads.

    He also doesn't punctuate either. The only time he used a period was to abbreviate. The missing punctuation is far worse than the capitalization IMO.
