Maybe off-topic but at least some parallel can be taken:

14 years ago I wanted to get my business Sony notebook repaired. First, needed to search a few hours for the right telephone number... I wanted to talk to person, not to fill some mail form...

When I finally got the service on the phone, the guy didn't want to take my notebook for repair (at my expenses, offcourse), and didn't even want to talk to me, unless I register first for CHF 30.- fee and then "we might think about...." (...his words). I live in Switzerland, the notebook had been bought in Switzerland, and wanted to send it to swiss Sony repair center...

Lessons learned: the Sony notebook landed in trash, and I bought new one - not Sony(!!). I never ever again did buy any Sony product since(!!) and will never buy it in the future....

The Nikon USA might get in hard times some day...
