Well, got the body back from Nikon. Did a little comparison testing today with the 17-55mm f/2.8. Both before and after are ISO 640 at f/4.0 17mm:

Cropped center frame prior to repair:


After repair:


Cropped left upper corner prior:


After:


Big difference!

According to the invoice, the repairs were:

RPL FRONT BODY
REPLACE RUBBER GRIP
RPL REWIND SIDE RUBBER
ADJ AUTO FOCUS OPERATION
CKD COMMUNICATION
FIRMWARE UPGRADE
CLN CCD
GENERAL CHECK AND CLEAN

Pre-printed card with the camera stated everything was restored to factory spec.

Total cost was $250.69.

I figure the cost was worth it at this point. With fall soccer over, I'm not really in a hurry to get a new camera. If this one craps out again, I may make the move to FX. Fingers crossed for now.
