Just bout a new Nikon 10-24. I found these bubbles inside the lens. Not in the center ,but where outer glass fuses with the plastic on the inside components. Im wondering if this is normal or not....

Images dont seem affected, should i keep it or change it  ?

I got the replacement and guess what? It looks the same, just a little less intense. No bubbles in the glass itself just at the area where the lens element fuses to the dark black plastic. I guess it doesnt matter because that area doesnt take light in to the lens iris (because its right on top of the plastic)? The serial number on the warranty was only a few dnumbers ahead of the old onw...still makes me wonder if its a bad batch or what.....clueless. The lens works nicely though.
