Anyone here own a Nikon 24-70 2.8 G? If so, I was wondering if you ever looked down the barrel of the lens, and do your gyro's or mechanical parts or whatever, look "chipped" or have factory cuts in them? I've owned my lens for 2 years and ONLY noticed that last night.
looks unusual, and i'm only paranoid because my girlfriend doesn't handle my camera gear the way a man handles his beer and a new born baby. Asking "can you move this over there" is "sure, i'll drop your camera bag over there" in her head. So after inspecting, I just hope this is factory precision cuts and not a chip in the mechanics.
how much would repairs cost
the zoom ring works smooth, AF is on point, and focus ring has no problems. and NO rattle noise comes from it.
I get money to push a button
