Just a quick note. Another Nikon repair experience! This time it was my 300mm f/2.8 VRII lens which had a broken tripod collar. This repair went very fast – I don’t have dates exactly, but they were able to quickly repair it even despite the holidays. No complaints about the service this time. I know that previous services have had challenges so I wanted to note that this one was just fine, logistics and all.
(Side note, I’ve never had problems with the repairs themselves; the problem always seems to be the case management but again, in this case that was great too).
