Re: 2.8/70-200 G SSMII won't focus anymore

Wanted to report back after my earlier post in this thread.  I did seek an estimate from PhotoTech for my 70-400 G II , and then sent the lens to them.  It came back fully repaired/working.  They replaced the helicoid, replaced the focus motor assembly, and did a general cleaning and lubrication.  The lens is now working as new.  The cost for the parts and labor, tax, and return shippin was $847...expensive, but still less than buying a used lens (with unknown history).  PhotoTech provides a 90 warranty on their work.

I'm happy to have this lens back in service, especially during the high school soccer season, as I shoot my son's games.

Given the experience, I'd recommend PhotoTech for Sony repairs.
