Came home from work a llittle today early due to the freezing rain and within 10 mins of arriving a box showed up from Purolator Courier. That was meant to be for sure, as I never ever come early from work for weather.

My long lost AF-S NIKKOR
80-400mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR returned from repair. It was sent in from Kingston, Ontario on 17 Dec 2017 to Mississauga, Ontario. Glad it wasn't sent in in error, look at the list of repairs they did to the lense. Overall excellent job and they cleaned out every spot and speck of dust from inside the lense, very impressed with this. On top of that no-charge. Surprised at all the parts they replaced, not sure if this is a lense issue or just my copy. Total time from being sent in to receiving was 34 days not counting each day for sending both to and from. Also over the Christmas period they would have had some extra time off so not too bad down time.

General Check & Clean

Replaced the following parts:

(1) Lens barrel unit
(2) Rubber grip
(3) Bayonet mount
(4) VR unit

Reason for sending in lens was that I was not able to focus when lens Focus Limit Switch was in the ∞–6 m position: Photos were not sharp and out of focus. It worked fine in the Full position for subjects under 19.69 feet.


Only thing's that I would mention as a con was the log-in at the website never did work for me and I had no idea the repair was done as they didn't inform me of that. Neither are a real big issue but the log-in did cause me to call in and check on the status at one point.
