Just received a new SW 127 mak, and I'm wondering if I should complain about it.
The primary has two pieces of debris on it. Like breadcrumbs, big enough to easily be seen from outside the lens. Maybe from the holes that were drilled for the dovetail or finder bracket.
There is missing paint in many places along the white trim that meets the lens cap, and I see paint is stuck on the inside of the lens cap. But there appears to be much more paint missing than is inside the lens cap.
The inside of the lens cap also looks like someone pooped diarrhea on it, let it dry, and then gave it a rinse. I should check if it can be cleaned away.
The knurled ring of the visual back has signs of wear, although I suppose it could look like this merely as a result of very cheap construction.
There are small blemishes along the white trim at the top. Perhaps this is normal. The lens has minor debris on the inside. Perhaps also normal. The outside of the lens was filthy, white dusty particles all around (more of the missing paint but I still doubt it accounts for all the missing paint). Luckily the lens looks clean now (on the outside at least) after using my air blower tool.
I just like to get what I pay for, so thank you for your help in advising whether what I've described is "normal."
Is getting the debris off the primary possible? Is this recommended?
Thanks so much in advance for the help.
