| p.1 #1 · Weird question, what happens to returned lenses? |
A few weeks ago I purchased a new lens from Amazon during the Canon rebates. The lens I received had some issues which were minor but still I wanted to make sure it was ok. Ended up returning the lens via RMA and Amazon sending me a second lens. I compared them back to back and found the new lens was softer.
Instead of dealing with Amazon, I decided to spend the $20 and ship the lens to Canon repair for them to fix it. Also I wanted to be sure that I had the sharpest lens possible, especially considering the steep price I paid.
But this question got me wondering, what does Amazon or any other retailer do when the lens is returned? I would think people who are searching for the perfect lens might buy and return multiple lenses, does the retailer send all of these back to Canon? Or do they do a "Fry's Electronics" style where the items are slightly discounted and returned to the shelf?
