My New 70-300IS Is Going Back...

I waited for almost a year for this lens, I got it and now I have to send it back!!!

There is an ever so small mark on the front element. Just enough to show in pics.

I had plans for this lens for this weekend, I guess I'll have to reschedule.

Sorry to hear that. Alas, it is yet another confirmation of spotty recent Canon QC.

It was for a personal shoot that can be rescheduled without much hassle. I just hate to make plans then cancel due to faulty NEW equipment.

Oh well, if it wasn't this it would be the weather.

Ow. That bites.

Can you post a pic? I am curious to see how bad it is/what it is.

Be careful. When Nip suggested that I rent a lens a few weeks ago, I bought it instead.

I couldn't get a pic of the element damage, it was so small it could barely be seen. It does show on images tho. I thought it was dust on the sensor but it was not there when I put the 18-55 back on the camera. I also noticed it in different locations on different images. The front element rotates when focusing with this lens.

here is a 100% crop of the bad spot:
Attachment 144469

I know, it's small and easy to fix but it is was not ordered with the lens

No need to rent a lens for the weekend, the weather is not looking very good for the next few days. I'm gonna cancel my plans anyway.

I used the 70-300 to get the pic for my avatar. I cropped out the bad spot.

I'm getting ready to send my D200 in for a focus system check, I would like to suggest that you rent a D300 for me.
