    Nikon Self Service Repair Portal

    In a move likely to be embraced by DIY camera enthusiasts, Nikon has introduced a new portal providing repair manuals and parts for self-repair of their cameras. This represents a notable change from Nikon's previous stance of not supplying spare parts to independent repair shops.

    The new portal offers consumers detailed information on repairing Nikon cameras, including step-by-step instructions, troubleshooting guides, and comprehensive parts lists. Currently, only the 28-400mm F4-8 VR lens is featured.

    This initiative is a positive development for the right-to-repair movement, empowering Nikon users to fix their own devices. However, it's crucial to understand that camera, and particularly lens, repairs can be extremely intricate. Nikon advises that only those confident in their skills should undertake these repairs. I also have some reservations about lens repairs without specialized alignment tools, but a thorough review of the repair manual might clarify these concerns.
