I guess the hordes of other Sony 300mm f2.8 owners we have here must have missed your thread.

I really didn't think that my story was relevant to just owners of that lens. I hoped that maybe someone else had also had repair trouble with Sony and had some advice about who to contact. I can't be the only one that didn't fit into Sony's rigid 'system'.
I also thought that the fact that I'd found a helpful independent repairer might have sparked some interest.
I much appreciated David's help and guidance and it was his help that eventually caused me to have enough information to make a decision. I didn't go along his 'Liverpool path' for a couple of reasons. First because I was a bit scared of trusting such a lens to the post/courier. Second because when I spoke to them they seemed incredibly busy and , whilst helpful, were not nearly so helpful as the folk that I eventually did use.
In short I left a whole raft of open questions and was quite surprised that nobody seemed interested.

In the web pages, we publish and list resources which have not been updated for some time. Therefore it would be good to know who the repairers are, and to list their phone/web in that part of the site - after the repair is satisfactorily completed.
