    Send it to Nikon. Expensive, yes, but probably more reliable. Otherwise, try the shops like Camera Workshop, Cam X, etc. Don't try to take it apart yourself.

    I have took it apart a few times and put it assemble it back.


    It's not really that difficault although I won't encourage others to follow.

    The lens is not expensive.. I reckon i't's not really worth it to send to nikon to repair. As the service charge is $80, w/o them doing any repair to it.

    Ok.. will check with those shop at penisular to find out the charges.
