Hey everyone! I just screwed on a Nikon UV filter on my unused, new 28-105 lens and the mount turned! Then I tried to reverse the filter turn and the mount turned in the other direction too! (This was with camera off, so focus ring was locked.)

Is there a problem?

I called Nikon and one tech guy didn't know anything, so I spoke to another and he said "it doesn't sound normal" but he really didn't sound sure of himself.

I phoned CameraWorld, where I ordered the lens from, and they said I was past the 14 day return/exchange period, so I'd have to send back to Nikon.

Should I do this, or is the lens fine?

Thanks!

Dave C.
