Nikon 24-70 2.8 Non VR - Zoom Issue Fixed?

Will be buying either this or Tamron 24-70 2.8 G2 over next few months.

Initially (yes, years ago, but stil) there were many reports of zoom ring grinding on the Nikon.

Then, reading up on it, some claim that the mechanism was fixed in later versions.

Any confirmations of the status?

Willing to spend the money on the lens for the optical performance, but not at the risk of mechanical issues that result in back and forth for repairs and more money spent.

If later versions were fixed, which some claimed was a loosening screw, than that would eliminate concerns.

Thanks!
