Default I finnally get IT

I bought the Nikon 12-24 DX lens the first of the year based on the outstanding feedback it was recieving from the underwater photograghers who had tried it. It was disappointingly not the amazing lens I had been expecting. It was soft and fuzzy
(OK for teddy bears but not lenses).
I returned it to Nikon's service center and promptly recieved a service order for "major" warranty repairs. The package arrived just today, not with a repaired lens, but a brand new replacement. Put it on the camera and took a few test shots, I finally understand why everyone is so happy with this lens.

Thank You Nikon,

I have another good story as well. I had accidentally broken the focus distance window on my 28-70 but patched it up myself with a clear vinyl strip. At a later date I requested a regular clean/check procedure at Nikon in Melville, and when I picked it up the window was fixed! I didn't even ask Nikon to fix it as I was sure the warranty would not cover the type of abuse the lens received. Kudos to Nikon too!
