Experience Nikon UK Service Department?

Hi,

What is your experience of Nikon Repair in the UK?

I sent them a lens (105mm Micro f2.8 AIS) for relubrication &  cleaning, and paid £ 131 for the service.

A month later the lens came back clean but with the focus action still stiff as before it went.

I sent it in again and another month later,  it came back relubricated but with a lot of dust inside the lens, and the aperture blades all got what seems like oil spots sprayed on them,  so the lens is now sent away again for cleaning.

This is a very frustrated and time-consuming experience and I wonder how other users get on with Nikon Service. Please share your experience and tell me how to make sure that the lens doesn't have to go back to Nikon for the 4th time.
