It's probably old news to some of us (excluding me, obviously), but the Nikon Service Center in SM Megamall has been moved to the Makati area, specifically in at the ground floor of The Residences at Greenbelt 2. The look and feel of the new center is much better compared to the previous one: spacious showrooms displaying all (or most of) the cameras and lenses for anyone to try out and play with, a small exhibit housing film cameras and old lenses rests on one side, plus the repair center has been strategically placed in a separate room. Long story short, it's an enjoyable experience to be there.

My only question though is this: why move it in the first place? Why not just copy, paste, edit and enhance another center and expand your coverage to the many men and women of this metropolis, most of them with Nikon-related needs?

I suppose it's not that of a big deal to ask for more than one center. Your service is good (at least for me), your repairmen's skills are arguably unquestionable, and I have no qualms as to how you take care of my gear. But seriously, Nikon, you're making it hard(er) for your clients to get to you, which is probably one of the main reasons why a significant number of photographers have jumped ship "from gold band to red" over a couple of years or so. Yeah, you know what I mean.

Then again, I'm probably saying this because Megamall is nearer to me than Makati, so......
