| p.1 #1 · The Importance of Bubble Wrap & Good Packaging |
Just a little light-hearted reminder of the importance of good packaging of photographic items...I recently purchased a lens (here on B&S) and USPS delivered one of the worse crush-jobs I've seen in a long time. Luckily, the seller had wrapped the lens in a couple of layers of bubble wrap which was then surrounded by a larger layer of air-packs. The dual-layer packaging really helped to protect the lens (though it probably also helped that it was a small, light weight lens with no heavy elements or IS but still...). A thorough examination & testing of the lens has revealed no ill-effects...thanks Steve.
I never ceased to be amazed how poorly packaged some items are that I've purchased not only here from B&S members but from major retailers like Adorama, B&H, KEH...and the worse offender of all, Amazon.com! If this lens had been as poorly packaged as some other items I've receieved, I doubt it would have come out unscathed.
