Non USA Lens Can't be Serviced
Dec 1, 2012

I recently sent my 24-70 2.8 to a US Nikon service center for service. I hadn't received confirmation that they received the lens so I made a call. They informed me that it had not been serviced because it had a non USA serial number and unless I could prove that I had purchased it outside of the country they could not service it. The lens was a gift, I could not for the life of me find the receipt and my gut feeling is that it was purchased at B&H. They are sending my lens back to me.

Anyone out there experience the same? What options do I have. I have a nice lens that's locked up and out of luck.
