I am new here. I have a D70 that appears to have the BGLOD. Nikon service presently has it and advises that it will be $229 to repair.

I bought the camera 16 months ago from a local photographer with a Nikkor AF 35mm F2 lens for $550 It has 8000 actuations now. I have used it for about 200 images. Presently I have my lenses at Nikon for repair cleaning

35MM F2 AF repair cost $81

70-210 AF F4-5.6 repair cost $107

35-70 AF F3.3-4.5 repair cost $115

the 35-70 and the 35mm were working fine but I sent them in in case there was a problem that caused the BGLOD
The 70-210 was a state surplus lens bought on Ebay that apears to have been dropped.

My question is are these lenses worth the repair cost or should I just find some others on Ebay

I am an engineer and I use the camera for inspection reports and I hope to do some contract technical writing.

I need to tell Nikon to fix or return..
