Nikon issues mini-statement on 24-70mm f2.8 light leaks (tries to avoid a 1DMk3-style waterloo?)
Under pressure from photographers, Nikon has finally issued a mini-statement on the reported issues of light leaks with the Nikon 24-70mm f2.8 lens. Galbraith has the statement, along with discussion of the issue, and their own findings both through their regular shooting and also their attempts to reproduce the issue.
It is quite surprising that companies let these issues linger for weeks and months before addressing them. Unlike the Thom Yorke song, once a leak becomes a lake, there are going to be very loud voices in your earpiece if you are Nikon support :) Maybe Nikon is jealous of the 1DMk3-kerfuffle, and they want to have one of their own ;-)
