Could you site a reference on the light leak issue with the 24-70? I've never heard of that. I'd like to know more about it and what Nikon did to fix it.

A light leak from not closing the eye piece will affect any lens during a long exposure.

It's all over the Web. Just do a search on 'Nikkor 24-70 light leak' and you'll be flooded with information.

This has nothing to do with not closing the eyepiece shield during exposure. It's a very real occurrence and only becomes apparent in bright light falling on the lens barrel. I had this repaired by Nikon several years ago so I don't remember all the details. I read (at the time of my repair) that Nikon Asia had done a recall, but I can't remember all the details. I suggest you call Nikon and ask them directly.
