Adorama sent broken or refurbished lens with kit
Feb 8, 2008

Ordered my D80 with the 18-135 and 70-300VR. The box for the 70-300 was all beat up and had clearly been opened. Inside the box was a sheet from the Adorama Return Department showing the return of several lenses to Nikon with a circle around the 70-300. There was no warranty card and no instructions and no soft case like there was for the 18-135. The lens rattled a bit as well. I am guessing that the lens was supposed to have been sent to Nikon for repair and was sent to me instead as a new lens.

I have sent Adorama an e-mail (they close early on Friday and don't open until Sunday so I could not call). I will keep you posted. My enthusiam over my purchase was certainly dampend.
