70-200 VR loose on D300 - OCD?
Jul 8, 2008

I know this has already been discussed in other posts/fora/sites but my new 70-200 VR is loose (rotationally) on the D300 body. Haven't been able to measure how much (suspect only 1 - 2 mm) but is noticeable. Have the same but less significant symptoms with the 17-55 DX and other lenses are perfectly tight.

For others with this problem, have you chosen to live with it or have you sent in (at your own expense) the lens + body for service? Was it worth it? Did you have any problems with fit with other lenses after getting it back from service?

I realize that ultimately it is my decision whether or not to send it in (depending on how much it bothers me), but I'm trying to be less obsessive about things like this

(Side question: Due to the weight of the lens, could this result in either the lens/body mounts from bending or incurring more damage?)
