LOL

> APS ... seems to me they're more willing to listen to customer input, and there's also a good chance they can do it for less.

They are certainly more customer friendly than Melville. They are nearly always much faster, too. More than once I've had something in and out of their shop in two days - Melville can't even tell me that they've received it that quickly. And they don't have the stupid grey market rule problem.

But in my experience, they are rarely much less expensive than Nikon, since the parts all come from Nikon and repairing sophisticated cameras is an in-demand skill...

Once I dropped off my 135/f2 AF DC on Friday at 9am and it was repaired in time for me to pick it up on the way to the airport on Monday mid-day. Even NPS doesn't get that kind of turnaround from Melville, let alone the rest of us amateurs...
