Nikon has delayed the shipment of its 100th Anniversary D5 and D500 sets due to an issue with the logo printing process that may result in the logo peeling off. Nikon Japan revealed the delay in a newly issued apology advising customers that they will have to wait for shipments to resume in late October 2017. However, the company will continue to accept new orders for the commemorative sets until August 31st.

According to the notice from Nikon, the logo printed onto the sets' metal case was, in some cases, peeling off. The issue will be remedied and cases with properly printed logos will be shipped starting again in about two months. The temporary shipment delay affects all three products: the D5 100th Anniversary set, the D500 100th Anniversary set, and the Nikkor F2.8 Zoom Triple Lens 100th Anniversary set.
