I think this is something you could fix yourself, by replacing the rubber ring on the zoom, if I understand your problem. If you look at this site (which rplst8 recently posted in the English Cafe)

http://shop.nikonusa.com/store/nikonprt/en_US/cat/Lens_Parts/categoryID.59997400

you will see that the rubber zoom ring is a replacement part that Nikon sells, and that can you can install yourself by removing the old ring and slipping the new one on. The 28-70 isn't one of the lenses listed on their site, but you should be able to get the replacement part somewhere and do this yourself at relatively little cost.
