I sent my D200 to Nikon in California for repair. According to UPS it arrived there last Friday morning. I called there today to see if the camera had been entered into their tracking system yet. The fellow on the phone told me that they were behind and were still entering in equipment that they received on August 20 and it would be a couple more days until they entered my camera into the system. Is this normal according to your experience? My new little grandson is due on Sept 10, so we know he could come any time now. I'm getting nervous that my camera won't be back in time. Once the camera is entered into the system, how long does it take? I sent preauthorization to repair anything that costs less than $350 along with my credit card number. (Thanks Wade for the tip). Just wondering what experience all of you have had with timing on repairs.
