24-70 f2.8 II zoom ring rubber loose?
Nov 1, 2013


I bought this lens new in January this year, and now the rubber on the zoom ring feels like it's expanded. Not only is is loose and tends to move up and down the lens, but it's also gotten a bit wider to the point where it doesn't fit in the notch on the lens as intended.

The focus ring rubber hasn't moved a bit.

I've had probably over 15 Canon lenses over the past 12 years, and this is the only time this has ever happened to me. Anyone else noticed this problem?

Sending the lens for warranty hardly seems worth the hassle, so I'm thinking of just ordering another rubber, but worried the same will happen again in a few months.
