Is it worth it?
Hi all - Would appreciate some advise to my dilemma?
I have a F801 body, 70-210mm/4-5.6 and 35-70mm/3.3-4.5 lens from a long time back.
Sent them in to Nikon for servicing and they are quoting me as follow for servicing and repairs: -
F801 - $235
70-210 - $185
35-70 - $40
This adds up to a hefty $478 with GST.
I am not familiar with the market price of new SLRs in the market today. But do you think it is worth it to perform the repairs above? Or am I better off buying a new low/medium range SLR?
Thanks in Advance!

try getting another quote from TCW... the prices seem a little steep, which is typical for Nikon.

There is a used 70-210 f/4 going for about $400 at TCW. Looks like $185 is quite a reasonable price. Let's hope you get your gear in shape and start shooting again!
