A Nikon Canada Story

I thought I'd give you some news my experience dealing with Nikon Canada and their spares/repair pricing policy.

I sent in an old D200 to get the rubber hand grip replaced and a 17-55 f2.8  which had a cracked focus viewing window.  (Just want to sell both the camera/lens)  Simple and easy repairs or so I thought. I was quoted  $190 for the rubber grip replacement and $225 for that small piece of plastic !!.

But even the Nikon service guy thought the prices were outrageous and offered, without me having to ask,  to do both for $190. If it weren't for him I would be royally pi***ed off.

I'd love to know what margins Nikon make on servicing.  I guess they have to make up for the falling yen. (ap)
