> Thanks for the heads up about slow turn around - who needs that
Definitely not me. A few years ago my D2h had its inevitable "meter board failure." As near as I can tell, all D2h's will hit this eventually. It's acknowledged as a fatal flaw by Nikon, and they have a special procedure for handling it. It took them something like four and a half weeks to get it there, do the job and get back to me. Some of that was ground shipping, but from VA to NY should only have been *maybe* six days of that. In contrast, I had a problem with my 135/f2 AF DC. I dropped it off at APS in Chicago (I happened to be there) on Friday at noon, and picked up repaired on Monday morning. OK that was a bit special as I had asked if they could do it while I was in town, but I'm quite confident that it would have been less than ten days if I'd have just shipped it in and had them ship it back. The NPS folks get better treatment, but only slightly.
