I have an early 400mm f/2.8 AF-S version 1 lens that needs a cleaning, lubrication, and adjustment. I have contacted a respected authorized service center that is reluctant to take on the job due to potential lack of repair parts, especially the SWM motor. I do see that this lens has recently sold with new replacement SWM motors installed by Nikon USA. I am very reluctant to have the lens sent for CLA if a part like a SWM is unavailable but called for. Anyone have any experience with this issue? I am almost considering selling it for a AF-S version II, as that SWM is certainly still available. Lord knows what Nikon USA would charge for a CLA and new SWM on my lens, assuming the SWM is available.
