    f/2.8 on 20mm has useable DOF, unless you're really up close. Sounds like a good deal. Might even be worth the money to send it in to Nikon for them to fix it for you. $90 + $repairs should still be cheaper than buying it new or used.

    Yeah...Luckily I have a pretty good camera repair shop near my house. I think I'll snag it.
