Nikon 16-85 VR scratch noise problem?
Mar 17, 2014

My 16-85 VR is doing some weird noise during focus, manual or auto. It's like a scratch. I asked in a local shop and they said it can be some micro dust inside the lens. But I'm a little worried it can be the beginning of a bigger problem. The lens is no more in warranty so, what can I do? What do you think guys?

I'll attach a video so you can listen to the noise. Hope you can help. Thanks.

ps: sry for the crappy quality.
