70-200 VR stiff zoom ring?

Discussion in 'Lens Lust' started by Beezle, Aug 29, 2005.

  1. I happened to notice that the zoom ring on my 70-200 seems more stiff than it was. I think? Well, but I recently started using a 28-70, and it has a rather easy to turn zoom ring, so I wonder if it's just a relative thing.

    Is this something anyone has heard of? Worth sending it in for a lube?

    Mine's in Melville as we speak for the very same problem - a bit stiff at first, it became almost unusable, unless you were into using it as a strengthening exercize :eek: )

    My loose understanding is, it's a known issue, whether nikon will publically admit it or not. Assuming you're under warranty, I would send it in before it gets TOO tight. Word has it, it comes back smooth as silk.
