Nikon Dis-Service No-Repair
Are you in the US? Lens rentals does 100's if not more repairs a year and they say that nikon USA repair service centers are the worse of any company they deal with. They have long turn around times and when you do pay..charge you a arm and leg.
I want to send my D800E in for the autofocus repair but afraid to do so..might be gone for 30 days like yours.
They really need to change this small but important part of the customer experience. Fix QA and "fix" the service centers (in the US)
