I had pre-ordered my 70-200 VR II from Amazon in August, it was delivered at the end of November. I thought that I was passed the 30 day return period, however, since my card was charged during the holiday shopping period, the refund deadline is Jan. 31, '10. Wooo...hoooo..I may have dodged this bullet. Return labels are printed, it's going back in the AM.
I and others have reported, in addition to the 'chipped" threads, silver (metallic ?) particulates in the lens. A picture of this has been posted, this isn't my lens, mine is about 1/2 as bad as the one shown.
You know those may not be loose particles at all and could just be reflective bits in the finish, could be.
That is also true..several edges of internal "rings" are silver and reflective, not black...a few of the silver colored particles are on the optical elements. There is a problem with this lens and trying to determine what it is by looking in with a pen light is pure speculation on my part. Hopefully Nikon will sort it out and fix it. Mine is going back to Amazon today....I will re-order when I can be confident that a new production run is up to prior Nikon standards of quality.
