| p.1 #1 · 70-200 VRII fixed! A happy Nikon repair story! |
Hey all -
Just wanted to provide a quick update to a post from a few weeks ago regarding having repair work done my 70-200 VRII and me not being the original owner:
My lens is fixed and is now sharp as a tack at f/2.8 and the lower left corner craziness is gone! I originally sent the lens to APS but they forwarded it to Nikon Melville who replaced the roller/guide ring, outside rubber, VR unit, and adjusted the auto focus and all under warranty; no cost to me except initial shipping to APS! Lens looks brand new, arrived packed super tight, and functions like it should.
In case you're wondering how I got warranty work done as suggested to me in my original post, I sent in all the paperwork under the first owner's name but listed in care of me - no questions asked, repaired under warranty.
With respect to timeframe: the lens arrived at APS on August 2; they shipped to Nikon Melville soon after; I received an email from Nikon stating the received my lens and in shop for repair on August 6th; repair completed on Aug 12th; they shipped to me August 13th; lens arrived today, August 15th. Not bad!
My first experience with warranty work went quite well just curious why APS sent in to Nikon Melville.
