  1. Hi, all,

    I just received a new Nikon 35-70 2.8 - love it, love it, love it! I have found that when the lens is moved to vertical (either up or down) the glass "rattles" lightly. It doesn't appear to affect picture quality, but I was wondering if this is common? Anyone????

    The only rattle I get is when I violently shake it. I think its the screw drive b/c when I put my thumb over it, the sound went away.
  3. No rattle in mine, but mine is old, so maybe the rattle fell out! :)

    Mine rattles. All functions work just fine though. I purchased it used here on this board. Man, this is one sharp lens!! Be careful not to cut yourself!! A "keeper" lens for sure. Regards, Bill
