Wolfe called me tonight to pick up my 18-135. they said 6-8 weeks and I turned it in on the 22 of Oct, so they were right on with the time. It went in with loose parts inside from a drop and came back stating new aperature ring, new focus motor, but I'd swear it's a whole new lens, different serial number and all. that and the cracks on the outside are gone. I dropped it the first day I had it, thank god for insurance. But Wolfe(ritz) did a good job of getting it repaired, yeah I know they sent it to Nikon, but the ritz waranty was cheaper then the extended Nikon.
