Servicing optics?

How many of you have sent your binoculars or scopes in for service? I have sent Leupold scopes and binoculars back as well as Burris binoculars. In most cases they were just not perfectly clear any more. I would say that each time they were returned they seemed better than new. My Swarovski binoculars are about 15 years old and although there is nothing wrong with them I have been advised by other Swarovski owners to send them in for a cleaning and general service. If I was going to do it now is the time since I am not hunting right now.

I sent some Nikon binocs in once under warranty. They were misaligned. They came back completely unchanged. I sent them back again and received a newer model.

I think servicing higher end optics makes sense. Low end optics are cheaper to replace than repair.

I have never paid for any repairs, just shipping one way. I am getting conflicting info on the Swarovski stuff. Some say a service fee is required and others say there is no fee other than shipping.
