    After cleaning, your lens may not be the same anymore - lesser performance if the tech did not do a good job of assembly and some even experienced more dust before service (Fact that their repair lab are not dust-free clean rooms).

    These are NOT covered under warranty as warranty ONLY covers manufacturing defects.
