Would you believe it ?

Before selling it I sent a 300/2.8 vr to Nikon. The SWM was squeaking lightly and they said they had to change it (for a reasonable amount I have to say). 3 weeks later I got a call from the shop that sent the lens to Nikon (as I live far from the Nikon center), saying I could come picking it up.

While we were talking it went like this :
-You don't know what happened ?
-Er, no
-We received the lens a week ago, tested it and it was still squeaking.
-No way.

-Yep, we sent it back to Nikon and they paid for the postage this time. Now it's fine.
-Glad to hear it...

And now same thing for my 300/4 AF-S (except they quoted half the price for the same job), still waiting.
