Just wanted your thoughts on this: I have a couple of cameras, a D200 and a D300. The D300 is missing the small plastic part that "covers" the hoop through which you would sling the camera strap on one side. I called Nikon support and they suggested that I send my camera in for general/sensor cleaning to the nearest authorized service center. When the center performs the service they will also replace the missing parts, fine tune the camera settings, update the firmware if necessary etc., is what I've been told.
Having said that, is there really any difference between sending my camera off to an authorized service center vs. sending it to either Melville or El Segundo Nikon service centers? Will the authorized service centers have personnel that will do as good a job as would a Nikon technician?
Along this line of discussion, have any of you used the services of Peachtree Camera in Marietta, GA? What are your thoughts about these folks?
I'd appreciate it if you can share some of your experiences.
