Heads up B&H

Shipping a USD 1400.00 lens with a single sheet of bubble-wrap at the bottom of a box...
May I suggest a friendly talk with your shipping department.

That's very poor I had that once from SRS when they shipped my DA*60-250. Thanfully, no harm done except for a dented retail box. But they've never done it since I reported it...

I was very surprised by the lack of proper packing. Normally B&H shipments are more than well protected.

Yep, I've had good experience with my limited purchases from B&H. I'm sure they'll read your post and take due precautions in future.

Thanks for sharing. I'll share this with the warehouse shipping manager. FWIW, the lens is exceptionally well protected by the internal packaging the manufacturer provided. I am confident it arrived unscathed and in perfect working condition.
