If you don't use APS-C cameras and are devoted to stay away from it, please just carry on. Don't flood this with useless comments. It's a waste of time for you and other people. A lot of people are still interested in APS-C cameras and actually read comments here.
Yuka Osawa is also a photographer. If you know who she is... ;-)

It's no service center. I think it's his nickname "Nikon Reapir" causing the misunderstanding. He seems to know Nikon lens very well.
The barrels stuck and boiling fixed only this problem. Other problems require soldering to fix. And silent wave motor is replaced. Boiling is only a small (but entertaining) part. OP mentioned that it took him 3 days to repair the lens. No magic.
Sam Carriere: Still can't figure out for the life of me why someone who wants to shoot video doesn't get a video camera.
And can you figure out why someone takes photos with a phone? Or listens to music with a handheld game console?
I use an old Russian 500/8.0 a lot, handheld. It's really fun. I don't think this one would be any harder to use than 500/8.0. The problem is, I don't have m4/3.
Talking about focusing. None of the m4/3 cameras got something like peak focus?
Solarcoaster: All together now,
"FILM IS DEAD!!!"
The hospital I work at uses digital imaging system. And they store 2 identical copies of data at 2 different locations to avoid damage from disasters like fire accident or earthquake.
I love film. I enjoy my old Nikon FM2. But it's really pointless to argue that film is better than floppy disk or hard disk.
