SOME (3-4) MINOR DENTS ON THE BAYONET OF NEW CANON STM LENS

I have bought a new Canon 70D with 18-135 STM Lens kit.

 

I have noticed some (3-4) minor dents on the bayonet of the lens?

 

Is it possible for a new unused lens to have some minor dents on the bayonet of it?

 

Thanks.

If dents are really what you're seeing, one would certainly not think so. Where did you buy the camera? A reputable dealer should be willing to take it back if there's a flaw.

 

But you should make sure that they really are dents and not intentional depressions to allow clearance for some other part(s). That may be obvious; but if not, you could compare the lens against another copy of the same model. If you can do that in the store where you bought it, the matter might settle itself immediately.

I should say that they are scratch like (less than 0.5mm) dents on the margin of the dent.

One of my friends has told me that every time that I install or open the lens dents like that are inevitable.

I guess it rests on what your definition of the word "dent" is.  WOW, where have I heard that phrase?

 

     1. a hollow or depression in a surface, as from a blow.

 

It should not have any "dents" in it.  It will not get dented by removing and installing the lens.  Period!
