filmscanners: OT (was: Nikon Service

Hi, Austin--

Your point is well taken, that different divisions of Nikon are probably 
involved here, and not all run at the same level of competence. The point 
remains that a manufacturer with a name like Nikon (or any number of other 
names you'd care to mention) has a vested interest in protecting and 
supporting that name, which is worth $millions$ to their continuing sales.

This is the point I've been trying to make in these QC discussions(albeit 
perhaps obliquely, and not that we can do much about it but bitch), and I 
*think* it's the point Art is driving at (not that Art needs me to defend 
him). Any CEO that lets his (or her, in the case of HP) customer-service 
departments get away from them can be in for a world of hurt, sales-wise. 
It's just not smart business, even if it takes years to make itself felt.

Best regards--LRA
