Unfortunately this full repair requires complete lens disassembly and the cost of the repair is $650 plus shipping costs both ways, which did shock me. I would be more hesitant to blindly give them the go ahead on the repair but since they have so many positive reviews I will have to trust them and just get this thing fixed up and back in my hands. Its a tough situation but the lens is a workhorse and as long as it comes back to me ready to perform as well or better than ever. I purchased the lens in used excellent condition 10 years ago and have used it extensively in that time so I have certainly gotten my value out of it. Hoping I'll get at least another 10 years out of it now.

It would cost you about double that to replace it with a used Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8D VR G-AFS ED-IF lens (not the VRII version).
