My favourite lens, the "Howitzer", a Nikon 200-500 AF-S VR lens has a dodgy zoom and will now only operate between about 350 and 500.
Does anyone have any comments on the options below or any other suggestions? Preferably real world ones.
Option 1) The Nikon "Hub" is in Northampton, about an hour & 15mins away, so not too far. (I'd prefer to take it myself, and let them post it back).
Option2) I've been recommended to go to premier Electronic Services near Chesterfield (about an hour away).
Option 3) PJ Camera Repairs, Newcastle Under Lyme (about an hour away). Took an expensive bridge camera up there once. They told me all the options so I could make a choice & then agreed that their conclusion would be the same as mine - not really an economical repair.
I'm wondering what else to do.
