Hey! It's been literally weeks since I sent my camera into the shop for some repairs and I guess I finally leaned on Nikon in the right way yesterday because they emailed me in the afternoon to say that they were sending a new lens and overnighting it to me. I guess I finally got through with the whole, "this is a new camera that's broken twice, what are you going to do to help me get back to being a happy customer" line.
Meanwhile, to test it out I took photos of a bunch of random stuff this afternoon. More posts soon.
