No there no distractions in the top of the frame.

Check the bottom of the frame...there are a number of the exact same effect in the unprocessed OOC jpeg. The one covering the smoke stack actually starts at the bottom of the frame and goes up...IMO

+1.  I saw the OOF smudges along the bottom right of the frame as well. My vote is for some lower foreground dry grasses.  The 2nd shot looks clean, and there aren't any foreground objects.

Re: It shows up with some PP

I had the same problem. Much more noticeable and during a long exposure.

I'm returning the camera.

Your problem resulted from you not covering the viewfinder during long exposure as the manual states. I tested now on two diffrent bodies (D70 and D7000) and confirmed your result is normal. The OP's problem here seems to be obstruction in front of the lens. See the OOC unpressed pic he posted..the obstructions are more obvious.  Both indicate no problem with the camera, likely.

Here is the SOOC jpg, it was processed in the Lightroom 4, the lens was 70-300vr.

I see six of the same lined up at the bottom of the exposure... getting bigger left to right. Largest falls on the smoke stack. Looks like there was grass or something in front of the lens when yo took the shot. Since it's not in the other shots...I assume you moved the car or moved the lens. Using a telephoto, we often don't notice close obstructions.

Sherlock, you've returned!

Re: Heres on shot at the same time.

I don't think you have a problem. As someone above says the mark seems to extend down into the water. It is quite possible its caused by something like a blade of grass close to the lens. Carry out a few tests to confirm, but I think your ok.

They said it couldn't be done, so I encouraged my peers not to bother.

Lens looks decentered

Doesn't have anything to do with your issue but the right side looks badly decentered vs the left.

Re: Is this something I should worry about?

Thank everyone for your comments, I'll look in to that focus issue on my 70-300vr.

I went out and took a bunch of shots this morning and don't have any repeat issues of the haze.

Phew!!!:-D

Is this something I fine tune or should send it in to Nikon?

If it is decentered...only Nikon can fix that.

Did you shoot this through some tall grass? That's what it looks like to me.

That's what it looks like to me, especially if shooting from height of car seat - it looks like the same stuff that's growing on the other side of the water.

Surprised nobody picked it up that you are canadian. If you look at the bottom left you will see that its the dreaded "french Canadian red smog creature".  They show up now and increase until April 1st.
