Hey Ski (and others) here is more reading information on camera and lenses if you are looking for quality level.  You can head over to his web page and look through some past newsletters.

Patrick-
Thanks for the links. He is certainly a talented artist and seems to like the D500 as well.

Update: I talked with the repair shop and accepted their estimate of $225 for the repair. For that it will be worth keeping.

 

Thanks all for your suggestions and help! :)

I have found the Nikon repair department very good to do business with.

So that would be a good choice.Less expensive then a full replacement.

Mr 3Pin, the only experience I've had with Nikon repair was very positive. My 200-400/4 developed a squeak when focusing after 4 years of hard use. They covered it under warranty, and it came back working as advertised. I think you'll be pleased.
