As you can see there's a lot of skepticism here so we'll play it by ear.

Anyway happy to hear it's not squeaking anymore so...

Peace

Well deserved skepticism, it seems.  As I've used the lens, specifically once I started using the manual focus ring, the squeaking has somewhatreturned.  

It's not nearly as bad, mostly only happening when focusing moves through the entire range (close-up to infinity), and then it's only a quick squeak instead of a long, annoying screech.

In any case, I'm going to keep "exercising" the focus to see if it returns to the level I took it in with.  Considering I paid a good amount in labor and the problem may not be fixed, I need to figure it out while I still have some sort of warranty on the repair.

It's a bummer because I don't think I want to spend over $500 to get the motor replaced.
