Make sure you have an issue, for as I found out recently, if you send an item to Nikon without indicating anything wrong, they will not cover the service under warranty. I tried to get them to "tune up" a lens which was working fine but coming up on its 5 yr warranty end. they did a cursory look could find no performance issues and wanted to charge me over $350 to open it up and check further. I declined and they sent my lens back. EDIT 1/1/13- I should mention that many years ago I did have one repair done by Nikon. At the time I was using an F3HP and put my thumb through the shutter curtain (I know, I know!!). They did a great job in repairing it for me. So other than stupid operator malfunctions, I have NEVER had a failure of any Nikon product and I started buying Nikon in 1962.
