I just received my Nikon 24-85mm F3.5-4.5G FX Lens and upon removing rear lens cap the flange was coated with oil. I bought this as part of a package with the Nikon D600. The lens and camera body are packaged separately. The camera's front flange was also coated with light oil. Never seen this before. I received a 40mm F2.8 Micro DX lens for Christmas and the rear flange is clean, as I would expect it.
