Tokina Repair --follow up

On previous post I mentioned a problem with the zoom ring on my Tokina 10-17mm
It was recommended that I send it to Tokina for repair but that it was a 4-5 week time for repair

I sent the lens overnight to California.
After two and a half weeks I had no response regarding and estimate so I called them
Apparently they had emailed me twice and I had not responded. They had my email incorrect (one of the problems with underscore!!)

I accepted the estimate and they said it would be 2-4 weeks for repair.
Told them about my situation wjth a dive trip coming up and he talked to the technician about it.
He promised that I would get the lens by this coming Friday (I leave next week) which would be 10 days after I called

Today I got home, and 7 days after I had called, my lens was waiting for me at my house
