UPDATE: I created a group on flickr for this issue - if your lens has a damaged thread, please submit a picture of it here: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1283774@N25/ A set of pictures will make this poll more "legit".
Please vote in this poll ONLY if you own the latest Nikon 70-200 VRII f/2.8 lens:
You can see the results without voting by pressing the "view results" link under the poll.
A reader also started to compile a list of affected serial numbers. If you want to participate, list your sn# (without the last two digits) in the comment section and indicate whether you have the issue or not.
