I had 3 different 24-70 lenses and the zoom ring failed on all three of them before they were 2 years old (and after one year, which is the EU warranty period ...); I even have one being serviced right now. When I get it back I'm about to sell it and will never buy this lens again. The same thing happened to two lenses of two of my coleagues.
Optically it's OK, but speaking mechanically, this lens is pure crap.

Do yourself a favour; get it serviced, then just sell it and forget that it exists in Nikon's lens line-up.

"Optically it's OK."

Thanks for the laugh.
