I recently received my D700, MB-D10, En-el4a and 24-70 f2.8 lens. After attaching everything, I was looking through the viewfinder to adjust the viewfinder focus and noticed there was a spot near the lower right corner. At first glance I thought it was a spot of dirt. But after considering the camera was literally brand new, I thought maybe it was some excess "material," which was on the mirror or prism. Needless to say I was a bit disappointed. I emailed my problem to Nikon tech support and received a response that I should remove the lens and see if the spot is still there. I did, and in fact it was still there. Support give me two options, (1) return the camera to where I purchased it (which was on the east coast) or (2) ship it to Nikon's Service Center. Not satisfied with the response I called tech support for live feedback. The tech agreed with me that whatever the material on the viewfinder was, it was probably on the prism or the mirror and would not have any impact on the images I take. This naturally, was after taking the lens off. Does anyone have a different point of view on this?

If this "spot" doesn't affect anything then I will probably just ignore it rather than go through the hassle of returning it or shipping it back to Nikon's Service Center.

Thanks much!
