Anyone with the Samyang / Rokinon 7.5mm lens have damage on the hood?

I ordered a Samyang 7.5mm last week from the official UK distributor. When it arrived I noticed it had a small chip and scratch on the permanent plastic lens hood. I spoke with the dealer and sent them some photos and they agreed to replace it if I posted it back. As I had bought it brand new decided may as well get another lens in mint condition. So I sent it back but once they saw it said the marks were normal and they were going to refund me rather than send another as they couldn't guarentee they all wouldn't have some sort of damage around the hood.

So now I'm looking at buying elsewhere - Amazon or ebay seem about the only other options?, but just wondering whether this was in fact normal?
