Ranger, I understand what you are saying. But when a company treats me right, and another does not, it's a no-brainer. I looked at a lot of glass before I bought my Leupolds. I'm not disappointed at all. mtmuley
In some conversations with Nikon and talking to customers, Nikon has vowed to improve CS. Many have posted on different forums that the nightmares of the past have been non existent but, we will have to see what will happen in the long run.
Only time will tell and I wish them luck. Good product doesn't make up for poor CS.
