Nikon 200-500mm...yay or nay....qc?

The previous thread reached its limit so I thought I'd start it up again.

So here's a good one. Finished testing my new lens out and optically it's very good. China made...usa warranty.

Tried to attach a circular polarizer to the front of the lens and it would only go on a half a turn. Tried another filter...same thing. Try a third filter ...same thing.

Looked at the filter threads they look okay... looked at the threads on the lens they look fine. ???

Took out other Nikon lenses and looked at the threads... wow the thread size seems different... the threads on the 200- 500 are much further apart. With all the other nikkors the filters go on one and a half to two turns.

I sent an email to the place I purchased it at and I'm waiting for them to get back to me.😞
