    Here’s a link to the Petapixel article.

    For a limited time, if you live in Japan, you can send your vintage Nikon cameras and lenses to them and they will inspect them. I’m not sure if this offer extends outside Japan but I’m sure you could inquire if interested. You have until March 31st, 2018 to send your camera in.

    The official page explaining everything is linked in the article but in Japanese.

    Wow, thanks for the heads up! I may have to take advantage of this offer, as I have a few Nikons that need a good look over.

    The article doesn't indicate to what extent repairs would be made. Ring resistors in DP-1 heads? I don't think so.
